Here is more exhaust information. Yes it says harley but the principle is still the same.

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.
