What a beautiful amber. If I could paint my bike this liquid amber color, I would. If I could paint it this wonderful pearlescent amber, the frame, the wheels, faux tank, tail, the works, I would do it.
The first snort of the Lagavulin would most certainly knock the socks off a novice scotch imbiber. I love the flavor. It is so distinctive, unlike the smoothness of the Oban or Glenlivet. Heavenly. I think I'll keep drinkin' it until it's all gone.
(Check out that viscosity! Sticks to the glass!)
Headers & mufflers are now welded together & installed. I still have to make brackets and do one more thing--
GO BUY SOME EAR PLUGS! Yea, these cans are race cans & they make the Puppy sound like a drag bike. It really breathes now, & it really just moves; it scampers & leaps w/ leaps & bounds. I get a few pops, but when I accelerate, it growls. Growling is quite good. It keeps the non-growlers at bay.
I have to have the guy at Ye Olde Welding Shoppe weld some brackets onto the header pipe, & then I can make some straps to affix upon the frame. After the brackets are welded on, I can paint them.
One little point of contention here, though; they aren't the same length. I didn't measure them on the bike. I measured them w/ the headers butted to each other, aligned, off the bike. The welds are solid, so I just might leave it.
(Top pic exaggerates the difference in length.)

If there is one thing I have learned throughout this process it is this: Check your respirator for spiders before you put it on.
