surely moeller would have the RIGHT HAND 101 pedal for his kicker. it bugs me like all those kids that had LHD with flipped profiles but were too lazy to rebuild their pedals so the flats faced forwards!
having a facility like that would be awesome, chris sure has put in for it over the years, good on him!

My brother Kyle (Mad Man, new member on the JJ) built a custom exhaust for his Triumph Saturday morning using the Biltwell exhaust kit.. here is a write up with some pics:


The same principles are used from McGoo's article, including starting at the head (in this case a piece of 1.75" tubing that fits over the exhaust spigot on the head), and working your way back, cutting and tacking pieces of tubing to get the proper angles and curves you want.



This entire set of pipes was completed from start to finish, including the time to figure out a design, in a Saturday morning, about 4 hours not including the final mounts on the rear of the frame for the exhaust. It was completed with a TIG welder, a cut-off saw, 4" grinder, some flap discs, a couple files and a sharpie marker.



Keep checking the fit of your pipes as you go, and as you complete a section you can grind the welds down for a nice smooth finish. Spend the extra time getting proper fitment before you weld to ensure a nice, seamless look.







The right-hand pipe that crosses over the the left-hand side is made of 7 individual pieces. Kyle eyeballed, marked, cut and fit each one with trial and error. He used the shovelhead flanges from the Biltwell kit towards the rear of the pipes to be used as mounting brackets by welding some tabs to the frame, and finished the pipes off with a set of brass exhaust tips.







So with the exhaust kit, some basic tools and some patience a unique set of custom pipes was finished on half a Saturday, with exhaust tubing and a bunch of flanges left over. Kyle's fabricating tip: if you plan on welding all weekend check your argon so you don't run out on mid-day Saturday.

NIce ad to this thread, Kyle and Tyler. Love the mounting solution on the end of the pipes. Chrome these bitches and that little ring on the end will look like a milllion bucks.

One little addition I forgot to put in there:

The spigots on a Triumph head are 1.65" outside diameter, and the inside diameter on the exhaust kit is about 1.64". To be able to clamp the pipes at the head you can just take a grinder with a cut off wheel and cut a .5" notch into the pipe on either side, that allows it to fit over the spigot then compress when you tighten the finned clamp at the head.

for all you tig-tackers, try using some hose clamps with holes drilled in it to hold your place while you tack. trust me, it makes a world of difference in time when fitting and welding a set together.
