Last Saturday was a banner day... got the seat back from upholsteryman, and got the pipes tweaked.....

The pipes from Hoos are called his Street Tracker pipes. They are 1.75" unpolished stainless steel, and are, I think, a helluva value! He builds a couple of different styles... these come pretty much straight back at the sides, so I cut them to the length I wanted, and then cut a notch in the top of the pipes right under the pegs, and had the welder weld 'em up so that there is a slight kickup.... came out nice!

I love projects that take twice as much effort as should be needed. Should be an Airhead motto. (disston)
