Default New Paughco exhaust on rigid. Keep or make custom?

Got some pipes today. They are Paughco from J&P. I had to get something, cause the crack pipes I slapped on the bike to get it riding aren't cutting it anymore. Picked out a nice squish pipe set but unfortunately the rear pipe is hitting my oil tank. So I have to change/modify tank or just make some custom pipes. Do they make a smaller horseshoe tank? Dont want to get crazy changing stuff, just want to get in the wind!

I'd look into moving the oil tank. Look like there is plenty of room behind it. An hour or so of work and you're done.

You could just put a dimple in the rear pipe to clear the oil tank.

I had the same problem with a similar pair of Paughco pipes on my Panhead. They mention they fit stock frame, etc., but they don't mention the oil tank. I think they're made if you're using a custom, round oil tank like the pictures in their catalog. I was able to mount my rear pipe, but couldn't install the oil lines. I had a section of the pipe cut out and then brought it out some to clear the lines. I also had trouble with the squish pipe as well, but that wasn't too bad.

Not sure what type/brand oil tank I have. It came on the roller. What is E Start? Electric start? Why would that change the tank size? I will look into moving it back tomorrow morning. I thought of a dimple in the pipe, but I would hate to crack the chrome on them.

electric start.those tanks are a little shorter so theres room for the starter,but 2 inches wider.stocks 'bout 9" and the e start ones are round 11'' wide.
