Here is a pic of the pipes that tim and I made for the 47 last night. My dad had a set of cruddy shot gun pipes that used to be on a ul that one of his friends owned. I cut them up and figured out how to make them fit on this bike. They are crude, and honestly look like a farm kid made them. I even tried to make my welds look shitty to keep with the theme.
The secret to making an ugly weld like this is to have a big gap to fill in with weld. I can't wait until this starts to rust,.
Here is the rear bracket. I welded a piece of strap stock to a rear crashbar nut, then welded it to the pipe. It is hokey, but it works.
Here is tim with the new pipes.
HEre is the finished product outside. I have been working onthe essay contest for the last three days, and making these pipes was the break that I needed. I think the bike looks better with these pipes when compared to the shiny new chrome exhaust that was on it before.
