Hi everyone after i made some straight through pipes i have got the bug to modify in a quite big way (on a tight budget trying to use scrap where i can ) To create a nice looking bobber for very little money. so far i have done the exhausts and today made a start on the bobber build , i have made the rear mudguard (fender for those in usa) using the front. i have modified the battery box to take an aluminium checker plate cover which i will make next. heres a few pics of progress today. I also figured out how to post you tube vids so for anyone that couldnt view the pipes video here it is

i removed the old silencers and capped the balance tube on the upper header pipe. then slid some new gaskets from a honda nx650 j-r 88-94 which have the correct i.d and an o.d of 34mm.
i then cut and notched the end of 2 300mm pieces of 38mm o.d  316 stainless tube with a 1.5mm wall thickness and slid it over the gasket and clamped it up.
then cut and notched 2 pieces of 2 inch 316 stainless tube and notched it to clear the clamps and slid over the 38mm tube and bolted it through the 38mm and 2 inch pipe.  then mirror polished it all.

ive got 4 days off work and a pass off the wife for workshop time so mocked up right forward control its in the correct position and working now. So i can make an aluminium bracket up tomorow out of some 10mm plate. going to clean the bike also as all the dust from grinding etc its filthy. then onto left side forward.
