yep and I'm going to leave them be. In 1984 Honda built these bikes for emissions and they leaned them as far as possible. My bike being a californian bike is so lean it had to have black chromed pipes to hide the bluing.

It's still work taking a real look at.

Newer bikes have to meet more restricted emissions, and there are still times, even with fuel injection, that the new ones have points where they are too rich for race track use.

been toying with the idea of using the Boat wrap (heat shrink) for the covering if I do a streamliner body. It would give a smooth uniform shape and go on really easy.
