    hey guys i got some updates for my bike and i want to share with all. i cleaned up all the derailers, cables and levers. new dual pull brake levers and a sbp tuned pipe with a custom install. the new pipe is great works well better starting power and mid power hey and a little quieter. so still happy to ride this old bike.

    for the money yah it is worth it and yes you will notice a big difference, but i didn't like the suggested mounting that is why i change the way to what you see. hope it is good for you too.

    tuned pipe

    here is the link, you can buy from them and there have good shipping and not to long to get. please remember i did not follow the mounting the way there have shown. i have moded the header pipe and tube so that i can have it mounted in this way. i didn't feel i wanted it mounted below and in between the crank so this is a bit of custom work that i have done here.

    I see that you took of the front derailleur. Did you keep the rear derailleur on? Or did you just switch it to a coaster break?

    what i have found is that with this new pipe the start power is much better now and it does need to pedal up too much now so i felt no need. what i did is remove the crank derailer and the rear derailer and of course all gear selectors. changed to a dual pull brake lever for front and rear all in one ( works very well this way ) and one lever for clutch just to try and clean up the look of the bars. yes so no coaster just single speed now, yes did have to shorten the crank gear chain and readjust.
