This was a hell of a fix , and a bit scary for the owner. When you see this on your bike I would think stuff starts going through your head like " what if that snapped off while on the highway" . Kinda scary, this bike was supposed to come to me awhile back but with my schedule it didn't work out. So the build was taken to another local shop. Long story short plumbing pipe and exhaust tubing does not equal safe ! Good thing was the other shop paid to have me fix it so hats off to them for standing up to the plate.
