I can't say much about the exhaust. I've only been around the block. I did get my plate yesterday so I am going for a test run later today.l read a comment once that the La Franconi exhaust sounds like a big block v8. When I rode it around the block, I thought to myself "that really sounds good, just like a big block v8" but in all truth I am not sure what a big block v8 really sounds like! At times like this I wonder if I can think for myself these days. The influence of media on us all is huge.After my run this afternoon I will report back on the sound.
I put the new bars on today only to find that the bars are too short for the controls I have. The throttle side will be okay but I had to add two inches to the clutch side so it was long enough for the handgrip. I should have had a closer look at these bars. They are also not much higher than my Chinese ones. It was a lot of money to spend for a minor improvement.
The one I bought looks to be identical. I have searched everywhere for this seat and it is listed in many places (all out of stock)but sometimes using the Stuchi name and sometimes using the gammon name. My guess is that one place is making these seats and they are just being badged differently. The one I ordered, after converting to Canadian dollars,and including shipping is going to be about $100 cheaper than the one listed with MG. I hope it is the real deal when it gets here.
upload from webThis is the latest picture with the new seat. The only thing I have to do now is get new spokes for the rear wheel and repaint the tank. Although the paint itself is okay I misjudged the separation between the black on the bottom and the red in the middle. Now that the bike is more or less finished I can see that the black is just a little high towards the front of the tank. You wouldn't think this would be such a big deal but it is enough to change the overall view of the bike. The original designers deserve a lot of credit for the timeless design they created with the first Le Mans. Their design was so perfect (in my opinion) that even the smallest of detail changes can look huge.
