    Who is doing 3 into 1 exhaust for T150v Trident?
    I know Viking but is there anybody else perhaps a little
    bit more affordable?

    Why not try a 3-3 MV [or Hurricane]type for a laugh?

    Good link JAW, that V12 on song sounds beautiful. Plus the driving skills of Tom around the mountain wrestling the big jag is great to watch! Bathurst has to be the equivalent of the Isle of Man TT on 4 wheels!

    Yes, indeed Foxy, & to think Graeme Crosby could make a 750 triple go around there more than 5secs a lap quicker..

    I have a 3-1 on the shelf, might be a BUB, I can check if you like, you can have cheap. Came off a BSA triple.

    Maybe a bit tricky to fit a R3 pipe set to a T 150 - modification to header pipe angles due to engine slant & frame layout differences.

    RIII headers don't retrofit to a T150.

    well if they are plated that will be an added expense.
    Hope to go SS actually just dont know if I can foot the bill.
    I know SS is crack prone but you can weld it and grind and
    buff and you are good. Plating, good plating, is tough to
    find it seems to me. In fact, good white chrome seems to be
    a thing of the past.

    Theres differnt grades ( specs ) of stainless , I think 306 is one of the few suitable for exhausts . Should be no trouble with the right one .

    Just to be annoying , heres a pic. of the ' P.R. ' pipes , BOTH sides run under those frame wotsits , so theyre further in and dont scrape.

    ALL the works suckers ran these suckers , and the ' Ray gun ' mufflers :lol: are Megaphones , albeit somewhat flattened, very cunning , I think .

    My thoughts are that tight bends dont do what open bends , usually seen on BSA's Do .

    Great pix , as usual Matt, but if you do any welding on those headers, dont forget to check for leaks, eh?
