That's a pretty neat go at making a downpipe set in stainless in something like the original design.

Could probably get good money from making those.

I love the overall shape of it but I just cant get my head around that huge hole in the middle where all the usual gubbins live behind the side panels. I suppose I could carry my handbag there but....that's really not my style 🤣🤣🤣

😁 Not a problem I usually have!

Haha, in the days of the weekly little brown envelope with all the deductions and Net take home pay written on the front by the wages clerk 🤣🤣I though I was very important when I worked somewhere where that actually put the pay slip IN the envelope with the cash 🤣🤣🤣

They were from a 1972 CB500 Four. The repair work is excellent, not so sure about the finish but that's that. I decided not to name the company for all the very good reasons you give. It's only my side of the story and without the other side giving their version it can quickly turn nasty and spiral out of control. I only posted it as a reminder that life can be like a greasy cucumber; you think you have a firm grasp and next second your eyes are watering! ::)
