so this stainless splitter i made for another project,but it shows what i got to make for the center..these things are kinda hard to make cuz when you cut the tubing you have to have each side "indexed" the exactly the same so the "v" shape is the exact same side to side if that makes any sense..sorry about all the quotation marks

We really don't see enough triples being chopped/customised. There was a great Trident chop in a breakers yard in the Dover area (UK) about 20 years ago. It had been left for safe keeping. It may still be there.

Glad you've got some pictures up, love the pipes.

Looking forward to another great Rat build. When I started my first bike I was heavy inspired by art deco panhead in 1998 easyrider best 300. It had great metal fabrication with perforated metal and ribs that ran down the tank and fender. It also had switchable painted tank panels, it was an interesting concept that your tank reminded me of.

Once again you are not just a welder, but an artist. I look forward to seeing this one come together...if it's even half as good as 'War Crimes' it ought to be awesome!

thank you everyone! im flattered!..guess i should wonder if i should do a build thread or not.
this bike should go together in a hurry,only downside is as usual my bank account is pretty much empty,so im gonna have to scrounge around upstairs and find all the little things i need,other than that i'll just have to try n make everything, and thats kinda time consuming.luckily i had most the stainless for the exhaust from leftovers from some customer builds..ok i shut up n post pics.
