Having fixed the leaking float bowl I thought I would celebrate by putting up a couple of pics.  I've put this bike on here before but since then I put a different tank and side panels on it.

That is pretty. I don't think that is a stock color. What is it?

It started out as an attempt at Candy Alpha Red.  I think it's close but I'm colour blind.  I like it and I don't show it so it doesn't matter really even though I do like to keep it close to stock with a few exceptions like plugs and electronic ignition

OK, so some of it is stock but I'm not making any claims. It's not a cafe racer and it's not a chopper 😀

Either way, it's a nice bike.

That really is a very pretty bike. And those pipes fit up very well. What pipes are those?

I don't know anything about the pipes.  They came with the bike when I bought it around six years ago.  They are in quite good condition so I just left them.

I have the original 4 into 4 pipes but they are not in such good shape.  There are holes but I think they would be out of sight.  I welded patches on the holes  but I've never fitted them. Personally I like the look of the original pipes though I suspect that's not a commonly held view.  One day I may put them on the bike and see how they look.

The original pipes do look nice, I agree. Usually aftermarket pipes look like they don't really fit the bike, but yours seem to fit exceptionally well. In your case, I don't think you can go wrong with either set.

That's a great looking bike. The pipes look like Jama/Marshall Deeptone, to me. Here's a pic of my bike when it had a set fitted. I eventually replaced them with a 4 into 4 system from a 900 custom, though.
