Hey Tort, dont want to rain on your parade.. but the headers are not going to work i guess. The pipes have a different wall thickness and overall diameter.
The thick pipes will create more kinetic energy then the thin wall pipes and i know for 90% sure the welds will break where thin and thick are connected.
Especially since its a thumper a lot of energy will go into the headers.

Think about it as a big hammer and a small hammer. Small hammer is easy to swing with. Big hammer is heavy and hard to swing with..But when the big one goes it goes hard.

Hey Bert Jan!

Thanks a lot for discussing! You can always rain on my parade  ;D I see your point BUT! Its not a cosmetic weld on the surface, its welded through the material, should be tough as diamond. Also, both pipe types are thicker than original. 

And about your kinetic energy theory... The basic kinetic energy formula contains weight, not measurements. So basically, if it were true and had to be considered here, its not about the measurements of the pipes, but the weight of the different pieces. I dont believe all decent headers are made from pieces which are the same weight.

For example: http://www.southerncarparts.com/images/BMW-Akrapovic-Exhaust-S-B10E1-RC-1.png

Okay, its an R4 but still.

Taking baby steps. Here's the old sawed off rear end:



And here's the same thing with a bit welding and grinding done (a bad pic due to flash but no holes anymore):




You can also notice the small bar added to support the front end of rear fender. Did a bit of cutting on an old soviet bike's rear fender and got myself a rear and a front one both. I was thinking about going short MX style rear fender with led-stripe rear taillight, but the soviet one has a cool spot for a light on the top rear end so this is ideal for retro style fender-light. A bit longer, just below the cross-bar rear fender is also more practical, because it protects the KN pod a bit. 

Cut in half, its was a huge one:




Front one in progress:

Thought of riveting old original front attachment to new seat pan but the rivets were not long enough so i welded this ultra-beautiful thing from a steel bar and a washer. Its even better solution because i got the thank to be as high as i want, with exact perfect space between the tank and frame.



The seat pan is mostly ready, needs some grinding from sides but it fits great. There's a higher cross-bar in the back of the original subframe, which i didnt want to cut so instead i cut and re-welded the pan. The rear end is actually lower since the bike is on a stand. Also attached temporarily the rear fender for testing. Needs a lot of work though and its going to be just a bit shorter.

yo dude! nice work so far, tank looks cool!
question though.. cant find the offset for the rear rim. Can you measure the distance between the rim and swinger on chain side and non chain side? and how did you manage to get the rim alligned?

thnx!
