Default Re: Finished my bike.

Put the pipe (not the muffler end) in a bench vice and heat up the pipe with a torch and give it a gentle bend. If you have to do a rather steep bend, do it with multiple little bends along the length of the pipe as reasonable so as to not put a kink on the pipe. Let the pipe cool down some between making each little bend, or else the whole thing may get too hot to cooperate with you and may bend or kink unexpectedly.
