    just an idea for your header....FG headers made for the tuned pipes would probably work very nicely with your aplication....would just need to "couple" it together....just a tought...
    Looks cool though...you expecting much performance wise?? Take some vid when your done!!!


    The only thing that i know that mixes well with rhum..is my tummy and some coke;);) :)

    im hoping for a good power band, more for top end though as i run a 29cc stuffed crank engine with plenty of torque.

    go to DDM look at the Ped stuff. ESP has a header mount that may be just the trick for your pipe. it was his first product brought to mass production and got him into the ped racing world.

    Good job Eric, but you might have to cut a hole in the rear end of the shell. Let us know how it turned out for you.

    its actually a pocket bike tuned pipe that i cut and made to fit. although easy for the biggest part the curbed tube is a little tricky to get it aligned though. Although it looks heavey iit weighs a tad more then the stock can i had.
