High pipes down the left side, dual Hoske mufflers, black wheels, frame braces, no air box. Need to find a cool headlight.

get a headlight off a early 80's suzuki gs1150e, i think.... big 9" light, they call it a trainlight..... just be sure to get the one w/a bucket, cause' there's another model that had a fairing, but still a 9" light.... looks pretty cool, but guys that have a decent one usually want stupid $$$$.....

Got the mufflers tacked in place. I think they need to be closer to the subframe(higher up).

Headers are tacked together out of old stock 38mm headers.













I'll make pieces for the cross over holes and finish welding it together and have it jet hot coated or wrap it.

looks great, that spot where the 2 pipes run parallel to each other would be one hell of a spot for an x pipe.

You are correct but I would never be able to get them off of the bike.
