For those of you that remember, I diddled over a pic of my bike for some pipe designs. I just thought of a similar shape, but little extra. What ya think?

I accidentally overwrote the old pic. The previous design was without the up-sweeps...

remember that these are 2 minute MS paint drawings. Actual pipes would be made of mandrel bent tubing...
I just wich I still had Auto-CAD on my computer...

what do you need?
i work on autocad all day, something along the line of motorcycles would be an interesting break. hell anything would be an interesting break from nursing homes and supermarkets.

I used to have CAD R14, used it for Duct work and piping drafts and whatnot. It was a borrowed copy from some guy I went to school with. I loaded the program but had to give the disc back. My computer crashed and lost it. Never got it again... It's been a few years since I used it, I'd have to re-learn it all over again. But as I remember, once I got the hang of it, I was getting pretty good and quick with it.

I would almost want to follow a primary bend similar to the Bassani Pro-streets and just extend them and add the kick-ups at the end.
