Good news is, Jeff's been sending me texts about getting the pipes finished.

Never worked out a cool silencer design, so I want to try to copy the Toomey silencers in titanium. Shouldn't be too difficult. Titanium tube with 2 machined ends welded on. Only purpose to use titanium instead of aluminum is so they can be gold titanium nitrided.

Need to get to work on this immediately. Need to find a place for a support bracket under the bike, and there's nowhere I like.

I'm on the reservation in AZ, but will be home tomorrow and get back to DW.

Never heard of the Occupation of Alcatraz, so just did some research on it. Wow. Glad you posted that up. I always enjoy learning more about history, even if it isn't entirely pleasant.

Can't remember atm, but I'll find out.

I think it's possible to coat aluminum, but because the base material is softer, the PVD coating can be easily damaged. Something like that.

With mild steel, the nitride coating is so thin, the steel can still rust.

So far, I've only coated stainless and titanium.

Motherfucker!!
Me.
Asshole!

What's wrong with this pic???


I used an original Toomey pipe to get the approximate dimensions for my new spring hook design.



Blaming the pain meds. Somehow got into my brain to make 2 spring hooks, like the Toomeys have.

Just another mistake for me to fix. Already took the walk of shame in front of the machinist, and the fabricator.

Bill is making 2 more. Jeff says he doesn't need them right away, since he's finishing the rear section of the pipes.

I know I could run both springs to one hook, but not ideal, and most pipes leak at the header joint.

I got off easy. What's next?

Rear sections of the pipes tacked up.

Next, need to fab a bit of stinger and the silencer mounting flanges.

Already packaged and shipped.

Still at it. Struggling a bit, as usual.

Just unfamiliar with titanium tubing, so really didn't know what wall thickness to use for the 2 silencers. Used my judgement, based on the tubing for my urn project. (.039 wall x 3in OD).



Ended up going with .050 wall x 2.25in OD x 18in. Big mistake. Way too heavy.

Got a 6in x 2.50in OD titanium bar to machine into 4 end caps. Looks good.

2nd try on the tubing... another fail. Got the right wall thickness (.035in), but fucked up and ordered the 6in length, instead of the 18in. Dumbass move.

Hate wasting time and money. More tubing is on the way.



Also got this 3in chunk of 6061. Making a cutting block. Will drill a 2.25in hole down the middle, then slice it in half to clamshell around the tubing.

Pipes are welded. Need to get the silencer mounting flanges done, clean up the welds and polish.
