Medustas on 05 Ridgeback?

I saw the thread with the pipes on a 05 Chopper, does anyone know if these will fit a Ridgeback? Also, does anyone have the ability to make a sound file so that I could hear what they sound like? Thanks for any help you can give!

I have the medustas on my 05 BD chopper. Coast Choppers fabricated the bracket. Totally awesome look and sound. I am really happy with the sound of the martin bros pipes. They seem to be able to make the pipe growl when you let up on the throttle.
I have not heard any other pipe sound like that, even the J.J. lineup.
I think you will have no problem fitting the Medustas on a Ridgeback. What is nice about the Medustas you can get heat shields that totally finish the pipe. Check out my gallery.

For tech answer on the fitiment, call andre @ Coast Choppers (619) 599 1030

Hey BDMike, yours are the pictures I was referring to seeing. I like the looks of the pipes alot. Would you call these pipes loud? I really don't want something that is super loud but like the custom looks of these pipes.

Tony,
All of the Martin Bros pipes including the Medustas are loud. They are stepped but have no baffles. What I found is I can actually control the sound level with throttle and shifting. I deploy this method around my neighborhood and around our counties finest!

But if you twist the throttle into the main jet circuit, she gets quite a bark.

Thanks for the info BDMike, I had a feeling that is what you were going to say but I had really hoped they wouldn't be quite that loud.

martin bros. fittment???

Hey guys,
i also ran into problems with the fittment! The pipes were hitting the frame on my ridgeback, because of the wider frame to fit the wide tire... So i had to get chrome spacers and longer bolts to make it work!! After a day of trial and error i got them all buttoned up! Also the daisy cutters are really loud if you want them to be!! They sound like a train wreck coming down the road... everyone turns to look!! Maybe not for everyone, but i love it!! The sounds is like no other, bad assssss!
Good luck on yours.......

I had Medustas on my bike (not a Ridgeback) and they sounded great, now I have the DaisyCutters and I like the sound just as much. And like BDMike said its easy to go though the neighborhood without pissing everyone off.
