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!

Loving the 80ST
I love projects that take twice as much effort as should be needed. Should be an Airhead motto. (disston)
