That's some good stuff... I've always liked the Bill Hirsch products and they work very well once cured per instructions...

Finally added a rear caliper to Pandora. Used a caliper that has a quick release on the cable that will allow me to 'dis-connect' the rear from the front (I use a dual pull brake lever). Should be useful in gravel conditions.

The bike now has 3 brakes including the rear Shimano coaster. She stops quick! Very pleased.

Also lubed the drive chain, did a minor adjust on the rear cones, and did a 25 mile shake down run. I believe that she is now ready for the 2016 Midwest Scarecrow Run.......

Nice looking chamber and heat shield setup.... what did that pipe come off of? And did you need to re clock any of the bends to make it fit?
That color combo works great too

Still slow progress on my road bike build but today I finished up brazing my pipe together and painted it semi flat black with hi temp ceramic paint, then I ordered a pro circuit silencer off a cr80 off ebay.... this bike is getting close to completion but even trying to get to the shop an hour early isn't helping when customers show up about the same time I get there...

I went for a short but exiting ride today
Looked at bicycle accessories at Walmart. (no purchase).
Worked overtime trying to get caught up from a long weekend at the antique motorcycle swap meet, then antique bicycle swap meet, then drag race, and finally a few hours riding around in Amish county. What a weekend!

the x chamber is from a 78 Yamaha YZ80 i havent done anything to it yet but it seemed to fit like a glove when i mocked it up there looks like i will just have to leave a little bit of the bend of a poo poo exhaust pipes bend in it and justy turn it around and it will weld right up
