Motorized bike build

Looks like he had to heat the exhaust up and bend it out of his way, that's nothing though.
Is there a certain blow torch tip for that? Most of the ones I've seen come to a point except for the one for snow and weed removal
Is there a way to bend it without a torch?
 
What are most of you guys carrying, a patch kit or a spare inner tube and pump?
I carry NONE of those things even though I am in the high desert with goatheads and mesquite thorns strung out everywhere including the roadways.

I run Kevlar tires and slime filled double thick tubes and have had zero flats or leaks ever since I discovered they existed around 10 years ago now.

I have this kind of torch, but I don't use it to bend exhaust with. I have a pipe bender.

I have one like this. Over kill with all the cheaper copies but I've had it for years and use it to light the wood stove. The only problem was a spider moved in to the tip and it wouldn't light.

What are these needed for?

I think the headset may be one --coming from the kick scooter world, but what else?

Looks like this kit has a lot of those special type tools


I don't have any of those circled items which one would I need for the hyper cruiser?

A full bicycle repair kit is near useless on these bikes. All I really found I need is a hammer, vice grips, a wrench the size of the axle nuts, a 10mm, alen wrenches, a flat and philips head screwdriver, and a few other tools I can't remember off the top of my head. If anything major goes wrong you're basically screwed.

Best thing you can have is a needle nose and flathead to pull the master link in case of engine seizure or chain issues, pedaling back is better than dragging the bike.
