F'IN Pipe!

Finish weld a few seams, blend them in & I'm finally done with this exhaust.
I can't begin to tell you how long I've jacked around with this thing, only one more ridiculous idea to attempt which is that taillight.
I'm thinking in order to preserve my mental health I may need to restructure my
"Oh, I can do that,,,,, I think?" attitude a little bit in the future?

Holy Crap 15 comments is pretty crazy, thanks everyone for the boost I appreciate it.

As for the clearance, the bend at it's lowest point is only 1/4-1/2" below the frame rail & I'm thinking the photos are making it look way worse than it is. keep in mind the forks are compressed and this bike sits higher than most anyway. In the words of Squarecase Roger "These are racers eyes" & in my world function will always come first. I'm pretty sure you can lay the bike on it's side and the peg will hit before the pipe. So Mike upon completion let's find some twistys & go one on one, I'm very confident that skills, brakes & suspension will prevail.
