I am not sure how many people actually had a chance of running a 3-into-1 triple chamber? It couldn't be just more than a handful actually ridden an H2 with a 3-into-1 chamber.

I heard some refer to them as junk but I tell you what, I would not trade my 3-into-1 for a set of Dencos or whatever chambers out there.

This produces unique sounds and it is real torquey. I thought I just share a couple pics of my H2A Cafe Racer. I believe the history of pipes came from a roadrace bike and manufactured by Jemco. Also, I just love the look of it.

Would love to see pics of other cafe racers out there.

Boomer - Never paint the frame same color as the bodywork....rule #1. You need contrast so leave the frame black. Email me some pics of your bikes. Use photoshop to experiment with the colors before you nailing it down. Color is also personal so it is not easy to say which one is the best, but some colors are not meant to be on certain bikes.

Regarding pipes, most people just hear stories from people and regurgitate them. I usually just listen but I will investigate for facts myself before blurbing out too much. I can't stand sometimes when people compare Wirges v. FBG v. Denco v. Factory Chamber v. whatever else with unreliable word of mouth craps. Show some freakin' back-to-back data or something before claiming one is best over others.

The bottom line, there is no one design that can do everything perfectly. Drag pipes are different from street pipes and also diferent from road racing. When I get a chance, I will make a video of my cafe racer and let you see and hear what it can do.

The bike came all red,,personally I can't stand the whole bike red,,frame and metal. But I just cleaned her up so I could put it on the road. I'd like to see your bike run, that would be great. I'll send you some pics of my bike very soon. I just took some this morning.
My daughters would like my bike a blue in colour, a dark blue they said.
I came up with a few ideas myself,,,maybe a yellow,,or Kawi Green,,or a dark Cherry Red. and the finish,,,many clear coats. Give it some depth.
