Heat shield

In the brief time on Monday that Brad came by, we managed to discuss a heat shield for the fresh pipes.  He sketched on a piece of scrap cardboard a general idea, made sure I understood the orientation correctly ( cracks me up every time for some reason ) and we went separate ways.  Last night among other things, I managed to cut, form and perforate the shit out of this sheet of aluminum that I dug out of the scrap pile.     I had a old flat tracker friend over last night that commented on the pipes looking very XR750, I take that as a compliment.

  1. Heat shield looks perfect mate, and yes, you should take it as a compliment, the offset is spot on and quite like the XR, only yours are tighter and more compact . . . and nicer.
