    Years ago lots of motorcycle 2 stroke headgaskets were made of copper which also is a bonus because they can be annealed and reused indefinitely. I plan on making a new head as well as exhaust gasket. Anyone else out their do this???? I am doing the headgasket first as i want to bump the compression without cutting the head.
