Mounts start with the welding of a 3/8" bolt into a washer, these will be welded to the pipes themselves:

Looks pro, not garage build...

Thanks.
Just checking the look of the pipes;


And the 7 degreee 'splay' the pipes take off the frame line.

Now I can pull them off and get the ends painted and then wrap them , they'll get put away as I stiff hafta get this bike out of my house and they are adding to the width!

Had to leave this for a while .
Coming back slowly with the sorting of the oil pressure gauge and switch.
I was gonna have the switch off the rear of the engine but the lines look good and I dont want to mess with them.
At the front of the engine there is a handy port to the oil system.
So I re-purposed a brass fitting , it has 3 off 1/8 NPT threaded holes , 1 for the feed , 1 for the gauge and one for the switch:



I dont have the switch yet.
Thanks for lookin' and not commenting.
