The pipes sorta remind me of the big pipes on the Deals Wheels models and the Zinger cars

Only thing better would be fishtails, That would've been cool with the shape of the skirts man.

I did actually mock that up. Let me dig up the pics

EDIT: Here you go. Way back on Page 18 on July 6th.

That is cool man, I really like that but I meant the ends of the pipes.
One of the rear photos facing forward the fender guards look like fishtail muffler ends.
I should've been more clear

As over the top as these are, I actually like them.
It's perfect for the space below the fin speed darts.
I just have to say it:

Told you so!

That "visual gap"underneath the fin desperately needs something to fill eat!
But you probably have something in mind (I smell a "Comeback of the Exhaust Pipes" coming)

Thanks for prompting me brother. I may not have tested them right away if you hadn't.

Technically
What everyone knows as a Fishtail is more correctly a Shark Fin. Fishtails are more like your Flying Fish Tail.
That said, you can see the marked similarity in the shape of your fenderguards and your Fishtails.
It is cool either way though man.

Had some more fun stretching the bike even more with mirrors when we stopped for gelato on yesterdays ride.

This way you can stretch the frame without altering it, so it stays in Class 1 still!

Yeah, I'll have to remember to go back there for my final photo. :D :D :D
