My Exhaust!

OK Gang! I started to sand on the exhaust to get it to a shinny finnish as I did my wheels. After starting, the small exhaust turned into a mile in diameter... LOL! Anyway I decided to do a bit of customizing to save time and energy and to show my hands some mercy from pain. Anyway... this is what I came up with. I wasn't too sure about it at first but the more I look at it from different angles, the more it is growing on me. Plus I have never seen anyone else with the same effect and done by hand. Here is the result. Let me know what you think. I can take good and bad.

I like the concept. You might be onto something. I could see someone doing flames on a custom bike, or perhaps their bike manufacturer's name.

I love it, excellent work. Since I like undertail exhausts though, I'll never have a need for that artwork.

If you want to get really fancy try THIS


It goes through how he did his polishing, but look towards the end of the post where he put a design into the swing arm using a sand blaster.

there's hope in the words and emotion in the eyes
it's so easy to be misled by the savvy gentle guise
and like fools we trust the delivery
but it's all just drunk sincerity

That's exactly the type of thing I was suggesting.
