    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.

    There were a lot of questions being asked on this thread http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?p=19149991#post19149991 about some of my work and I felt like I was not being cool to this wonderful build jsullivan is doing so all of the question are being answered here..

    1. Siebenrock Enduro Valve Covers. They are a three piece setup with the center bar adding strength if you happen to fall on the valve cover. You still retain the 6mm bolts on the outside and the stock center stud.

    R65 Police tank. I'm kind of obsessed with Police tanks and I have a good source for them.

    Frame braces: They are the weld on style and unfortunately I do not have any good pictures at this time.

    Love the look of the R65 Police Tank... BMW always had that great /2 "larger" tank with the toolbox on top, then Hoske had theirs, then BMW with their police tanks... dam.... really nice stuff... and you say you have a good source for them.... hmmm... I have an 80ST (same tank mounts as the R65).... care to elaborate or share....:wink:

    From my photo collection, shamelessly stolen from any un-suspecting web site:

    No worries about my thread, I'll take all the activity I can get over there... :D

    I have a new appreciation for the exhaust you built for this bike after doing some work on my own pipes. Very nice!
