Nice score on the pipes. Were those on Ebay in Iowa?

The seller never responded to my question so I didn't bid.
Did they come with flanges?

Bummer.
Yep, you can get them from Gary but last time (Mar2020) I asked him for a pair he wanted $100.

Not sure if Garrett's flanges will work, but that's another option.

Shipping is delayed 'til the 22nd. :umm:
Some good news tho, my buddy's gonna help me steering stops, for beers and some shop labor!
It turns out, he's also good friends with a talented two stroke tuner, so may get him to cc and sort squish on on my head, you know, for manners :bacon:

The Spec2 pipes came, they have spigots and some character... I also picked up a new petcock and fuel lines, so hopefully this week we'll fire her up! :cool:
