Say these guys are not to far from you and have building pipes for ever. Maybe a ride down to them and you could get some help

Thanks! That was a good little read there. That was also a good idea to visit cycle shack. I live just one mile away from Arlen Ness' shop, maybe I should head down there and see if they can give me any pointers. I was thinking of heading to the muffle shop today and getting some tubing bent. I was also going to see if I can buy some of their mistake bends to practice on. I want to start dialing in my welder so I can make some nice welds. I'm also tempted to pull my exhaust off to make a jig for the header pipes. I think I want to keep the first few bends the same as the stock, so that would give me a nice start.

Are you going to make duels or a header? KEN

Duels. What I meant by "header" was the first foot or so of pipe from the head back. Sorry if I caused any confusion.

Man you find the best articles. So I dropped by the muffler shop after work today and got some scraps. The guy at the shop gave me a pretty good deal. He had a 1 3/4"mandrel bent U pipe and some other 1 3/4" scraps. He sold me everything for just $10. So I decided to leave the U pipe for the actual build, and decided to play with some of the scraps. I got some good practice in by welding two of the pieces together, then dressing the metal to try and get a seamless finish. The end result was OK, but I think I can do much better once my welder is dialed in a little better. Below are some pics of today's progress.

More practice shots before and after dressing the metal. I also started experimenting with tip cuts.
