Ya I'd be willing to do it. You can either contact me through Bishop's Custom Cycles or my email "jmstrand@yahoo.com" We can talk exhaust tubing size, muffler placement, bung placement and price. I've done a couple mild steel exhaust and had them coated or wrapped and this was my first 304 complete.

Got the brace welded to the swingarm, finished bolting a few things up, set the timing, ran the fuel line, had a friend machine out a fork brace that I will powder coat. Still need to tweak the carb a bit. But I guess other than brake lines, its ready to ride. Have been super busy with other peoples bikes. So squeezed this project in a little here and there. Probably after my wedding and honeymoon (couple weeks) I'll get the brakes buttoned up on it and get it out for a test drive. And I can't wait to get a member on this forum exhaust built so you guys can check it out, its going to be Stainless and one of a kind for sure, none of that cookie cutter exhaust that rolls of the assembly line!

Looks amazing man!

What throttle tube are you using? It looks like it's still the cv40, but all the 7/8th bar push/pull's that I came across only went up to 38mm carb...

Hey guys haven't been on here for awhile, I was just letting everyone know that the street tracker has been up and driving for some time now, I actually got it on the road on a Thursday, took it to a bike show on a Saturday and won 1st in "custom chopper". So that was nice to have the ole girl get some attention right away. Anyways. It rides great, I ended up switching out the CRF450 front master for a Brembo radial master off from a Ducati to match the dual 4 piston front brakes, just wasn't enough volume from the CRF master. Other than that its been great, I just need to get some decent pictures taken and maybe enter it for the XL calender. Ive just been crazy busy in the shop with some more exhaust builds for customers and if I get some time here in the next couple weeks I'll be building exhaust for my own 2012 Ulltra Classic and give it some attitude. Here is one more shot and then I'll be trying to get some decent photos for the calendar entry. Thanks guys!
