For exhaust I want to use the Paughco 735B independent dual pipe system. I dig the OEM look of the 2:1, but sounds too polite for me.

If that's too quiet for you, you can always get the "short police style muffler"
I put that one on my '65 and modified the baffle a bit to get it to breathe better.
Louder than stock, but looks OEM

You might take a look at 65240-41A which is the stock length
Or 65240-58 which is the "short" version.
They also had a "quiet" version later on 65236-58
I have the fish tale style also with my duals that I used to run, but prefer the single style now.

Easy decision. Drag pipes. Best looking. Best sounding.

Yeah the 65240-58 will look great perfect length. Pipes that stick out past the wheel look retarded in my not so humble un-PC opinion. Thanks for the recommendation

Couldn't agree with you more! And on that toolbox mount, I think it was a common upgrade to switch to the later style.

Pulling the trans out of my swingarm roller that previously held the 52' motor. Gonna get it cleaned up and down to Motor Jesus for mock up in the Vtwin frame.



I have plans for this old roller cuz I do like it. It's got a wide glide with a 21 and a disc/banana caliper setup, a 16" star hub rear with a juice drum, the 3.5 gal tanks are nice too. The forward controls and 14" apes fit me perfectly and I'd still be riding it if I didn't roast the motor.

Like a lot of us I've always had an interest in owning a Knuckle motor, so if I ever get my hands on one, then I'll pull the 69' Shovel motor outta my 39' frame chopper, put the Knuckle motor in THAT, and put the Shovel motor in the swingarm bike. Perfect!

I'll have a Knuckle, Pan, Shovel, EVO and life will be complete.....but what about a Big Twin Flathead????? Hahahha I have a disease............

My contribution to getting the juices flowing is hearing my fresh rebuilt motor on the test stand at Highway Choppers in Glenndale, Az.  They redid the bottom end after the previous shop did a 1/2 a$$ed job.  Had the heads and roller rockers done a Baisleys years ago and I did the install.  Dave said I even had the distributer on the right tooth.  Took my tranny to them and they repaired some bogus welds and rebushed the gears and replaced 3rd gear.  Really happy with the work they're doing and you would be hard pressed to see where the weld repairs happened. On my way to pick up the pieces tomorrow.  If you want to hear the Pan run it's on their web site under the name John.
