TJ - Beachcomber
Yes - I'm torn between 2 wrong eras !!!! Although there is precedent for high level pipes / meggas on Manx and G50's I think it's the turn down "snail" end that's worrying me.Looking good, TJ. Personal taste is personal taste and you've gotta build your bike the way you like it, but for what it's worth, I think the system you have pictured there looks really killer! If it were mine I don't think I'd change a thing. I've always been a sucker for the high scrambler pipes like that anyway, but in my opinion doing an under seat exit is moving things into a different design era. Build on, brother!
Ditto an underseat "Ducati" style would also be totally wrong. Plan at the moment [ in my head ] is to snake the exhaust inside the frame and up the left side [ chainwheel ] and keep it pretty well hidden underneath the bottom of the seat level and the side frame rails.
I've invested in another 180 degree mandrel bend that once it's cut and shut [ 1 cut - 1 weld ] will form an S bend.
I'm going to put the seat back on and check for clearances before any hard decision is made.
