Custom made by a local machinist. He's the guy who made the triple clams, fork brace and lightened flywheel for the daves cycle racebike that became my LeMans SE special.

Exhaust mock up.  1.75" Stainless tube with equal length headers.

That makes the exhaust plans for my Corsa Record look like a walk in the park...  Very cool.

Gotta ask about potential exhaust heat vs fuel/gas tank issues.  Will there be any heat shield, baffle, exhaust wrap, ?

Not an issue. The gas tank is miles away. There is not much choice if  I want equal length head pipes. The frame wants what it wants. My buddy Tom Hull loves making exhaust systems.

Slow going with life getting in the way but work has resumed. The back half of the frame was butchered by someone who should never have been allowed near a welder. Why you would weld crap seamed thick steel tube to lightweight T45 is beyond me.
We studied what pictures we had, took measurements, and my buddy Tom Hull is doing his magic.  The whole frame will be BS T45 steel tubing again. Some liberties are being taken as we do not have the original swingarm. The swing arm is a nice piece, don't know who built that.

fairing mocked up. progress is slow. Contemplating polishing the exhaust or leaving it hydroblasted.

opinion, should I polish the stainless exhaust or leave it as is ? Could I go back and polish it later?

I like the fairing pics.  I have no idea how the hydro blasted surface may show straw like polished ss does (?). That might look kind of cool, if it would color and look kind of like the matte blue finish on Britten exhaust.

All I can say is polishing is the gift that keeps on giving.. and takingÖ and givingÖ

Fairing bracket. The idea is to be able to completley remove the front fairing and headlight by taking out two bolts and undoing one plug.
progress is slow .







Thanks again to my good buddy Tom Hull at Tom's Italian Tune and Service.

Please post the details regarding the connections when you figure them out.  I would like to figure out the same details for my Corsa Record.
