Have you seen the price of this: 230523324044.  *eek*

Has anyone got an engineering drawing of one of these? Worth knocking a few up!

Now given up with the Vox job, constructed my own using these:

370100927165

290372295944

Not quite original look but within keeping. Will give me touring capacity without worrying about the odd rock getting sucked in. Not for the purist racy types as it squashes the pipe in places altering the lamina flow and Reynolds number no doubt????

Sorry about the language but that was bloody ridiculous. I find it hard to believe that was a genuine auction, may well have been a sham as they all too often are.

I bought one last week at a swap in just as good a condition as that one for $10 for my rigid A10. Like all this stuff you just have to be patient.
