I have been thinking about trimming two or three inches off but I wanted to start longer to see what it looked like first. I took inspiration from the old Yoshimura stuff which is quite long (18") but a larger diameter can so the proportions are different. I'm not a fan of stubby cans on vintage bikes. I also think the camera angle and lens distortion is making it look longer than it is in reality, heres a couple from a different angle. Its crazy how much cameras/computers distort reality, it looks different in person.
How far would you have to trim to make the can section equal length on either side of the mounting clamp(if that makes sense)? I think that would make it look nice and proportional. Either way fantastic work!
After being length shamed by Doug I shortened the can by 3". Had to remake the hanger because the shorter can threw the proportions off. Also finally got around to designing some branding and making a badge - magnesium dies for logo with 3D printed die for curve.
