Thanks...I had the tank and all the tins chromed when I originally started this build years ago. The pipe was made by a local guy in the Detroit area about 8-9 years ago (though I forgot his name now). It is based off the original Ruttman "S" pipe. He made it exact except for the flange to run a clone/Honda motor. I also had that chromed because...just had to..lol.
They sold it separate...like a add on part per say. But I am sure you could order a bike with it on there already. You could walk into a Ruttman dealer and basically build a kit bike any way you wanted it back in the day. And you just have to watch your heel of the boot on it. You will get a better view once the bike is complete and all the parts are on in that area.
