Looks pretty badass!

I'll be interested to see how the paint holds up on the pipes in a couple hundred miles.
Since it's BBQ paint, it might work pretty good!

Thanks guys. Well K,its not a few hundred but a hundred.

No special prep,I just wiped off the pipe and sprayed it on.
Jeff,I have the caliper kit in red,out in the shed.I think it would be a little too subtle.:D
And don`t worry Mike,your pipes will need painting again soon.

So is that High Heat Ultra in Gloss or Satin? I just scored some Epcos and will painting my headers...Do I need to take the chrome completely off or just scuff it?

. . . I wish I had a welder. Almost bought one once, but my wife was concerned that I would start a fire. Fortunately, my neighbour has an assortment :D

Marc,I have a set of torches and a little Lincoln mig at home.A partial list of home brew mods to my bike would start with the basics.pipes,extended swing arm,lowered seat rails,battery box,oil cooler,narrowed and un-flanged gas tank,seat,wiring,lights and brackets and cutting off just about every factory bracket,hanger or mount. Its only the start.:D
