    Hi all,
    Finally finished my bike,took it for its first run,i am still running it in and it will take a while as i only have one day a week to play with it.
    Man the smile on my face was from ear to ear,the bloody neighbors from all streets were out to see me buz buy,sooooo funny.

    I have a Youtube vid that i'm uploading of the build and test so i'll post it here as soon as i can.
    Gunna change the air filter to a K&N and make a club sticker for the tank.

    Oh i forgot i have to bend the muffler,whats the best way to do it as my peddle hits it so i can't peddle.
    Bren.

    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.

    Good looking bike!

    ...and I liked the video a lot... the metal soundtrack was good with it, too!

    Hope you have lots of fun with it
