I made all the pipes out of a dodge hood skin and a oxy/ acet. torch. I have pictures on this forum of my bikes with their pipes.
One week end me and ilikeabikea put on a live video how to on making a pipe on this forum so we showed that the average guy could do it, some of you people saw it quite boring.
Hi Norman, Yes, I am VERY interested in the patterns you have. If you can would you mind emailing them to me? here's my email addy:
If you don't mind me asking, do you have another one laying around that you are not using? I would love to be able to have an idea of what the finished product is like. Maybe even try it out on my bike before I do a build on the pipe. If not that's ok. I know you don't really know me or anything. So that's cool. Can you give me a link to the video where you showed how to make a pipe? I would NOT find it boring.

Don't know if I said this yet but my next door neighbor is a welder and he will help me out with just about anything I want to make. He's really good too. He can even weld from blueprints.

Guess I should go now. I look forward to your pattern and "maybe" a pipe. You have been so very helpful. Thanks a bunch!
