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.

Progress is slow. Did get the heads ported and flowed.

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.
