Managed to find a couple of hours to go work on this project a bit....

Maybe I should just shorten that front pipe and just weld the muffler on here ??

Nawww, I gotta try to do this "right"...
Whatever that is....

Fabricated some brackets, and strapped them to the bottom
frame rail, and tried to hang the mufflers so minimal fab
work is required on the exhaust piping to get them done....

Considering sliding this muffler back a little and adding a little more pipe,
but it's pretty close to where I want it....

Measured the angle of the front muffler/frame here,
6 degrees, want to make the rear muffler the same....

That's going to take a little more fab work to get it right....
I hope I'm really up for this....

When I pulled the offset drive Morris Mag off the shelf,
where it was waiting for another project, I needed to replace it,
so I ordered another one for that other project....
Even though it was well packed in styrofoam and
well packaged, the Post Office must have used it
as a football, the cap was busted in a bunch of pieces!

It was covered by Post Office insurance, let's see if that
really works, or if it's just another Gov't scam !!

Aloha for now,
Willy

Found a couple of hours to work on the '62:

Still working on brakes and exhaust...
Found these SS cllips online that fit the 3/16"
brake lines....
They needed a bit of reshaping to fit the frame tubes....
Just a bit....
Looks good to me....
Did 7 of them, should be enough for this job...
Now to drill and tap the frame tubes for these clips...
Found these in my scrap pile, not sure what they are from,
but I cut them up and reshaped them to fit the frame tubes
to hang the mufflers...
Got them located and welded them on....
Bolted up the mufflers, it looks good to go....
Now to cut and weld in some 1-3/4" pipe as needed....
Will use blacki hi-temp paint on the pipes,
but will leave the mufflers as is....


More later,
Willy

Had a little time yesterday, and the 3/16" brake line clamps came with 10-32 ss screws, so dug out the 10-32 taps and the #21 drill bit and mounted 'em...
3 on each side looks good, and the fit seems good too....





More later...

Welded up the pipes with my mig..
It's an older Millermatic 251, but it still works well...
My hand not as steady these days as it used to be,
but the welds are solid, didn't blow through anywhere,
and I can dress up the welds a bit before I paint the pipes...

More Later....
Aloha,
Willy

Dressed up the welds a bit on the front pipe,
Then ran an 80 grit roll over the surface to rough it
up where the hi temp paint will go....



I'll smooth out the welds a bit more, then
will paint them, but might leave the mufflers shiny....
at least for now....
Still thinking about that....

Yup. Shiny muffs. Wanna tig those welds? Got some extras that we could cut up and tig with stainless. Keep it shiny.

Went ahead and used the VHT flat black I had on the shelf, got 'em done for now...

I even followed the recommended "baking" in my wife's oven:
250 deg half hour
cool
400 deg half hour
cool
600 deg half hour
cool

Did it while my wife was off playing bridge,
and with the windows wide open and the fan on....
(I love living dangerously....)

The wife came home....

"What'd you do...."

"Burned a toasted cheese sandwich...."

"Man, that's the weirdest toasted cheese sandwich I ever smelled...."

Back to the bike....
Hung 'em on the bike, will run 'em that way for awhile...
Still need to clean up and touch up the welds for the muffler hangers....

Willy,
I've enjoyed this thread a lot page by page and I've picked up a few tricks I may implement to my own Pan as well. I hate coming across sounding like an ungrateful bastard by saying this: I think the pipes need more attention and rerouting. Its not that they are so bad its just that the build is coming out so good. The pipes are OK now but need to be SEXY on that bike for sure, less straight and more curves.
My hat is in my hands and head bowed.

Lester

The pipes are going to get changed, and fairly soon, but that's an easy change to do later on.
I'm working in a friend's shop 15 minutes away from home, and I've been there too long, I need to get this done and out of his shop. So the pipes went on as is. Can't find the original '62 Linkert and intake for this bike, also have a '60 pan project stashed away, and had to go swipe that Linkert and intake, it needs a rebuild so just ordered the rebuild kit to redo it. Also ordered new original style steel chrome oil lines, and need to hook up my "new" front disk brake system, and wire it. And I need to get that done SOON !!
Home responsibilities keep slowing me down though, like a big family gathering for Thanksgiving that I am involved in, keeping me away from the shop more than I wanted....
Oh well...
Willy

The carb for the '60 needed a rebuild anyway. so will do that and if I find the '62 carb later it can go on the '60.
