Mikey

That looks pretty sweet to me

What does that pipe sound like?-I have one waiting to fit onto my Z1R

Do the down pipes discolour with use?

Thanks

I like everything you have done to it.
Superb!

Reminds me of a bike that a mate of mine had around 1976.
That one had a piper exhaust and a "modified" baffle - similar looking to yours
I bet it sounds great

Cheers

Hi Mikey

that's the best excuse I've ever heard to restore a bike! I'll keep it in mind, just in case ...
I hope my wife believes me if I tell her that I have to restore a whole bike because it has a puncture. :rollpin

No, just joking, you did a very fine job!!! :up
