the Blue flame cans caught my eye too.

i remember spending a few weeks wages on a Allspeed exhaust for my little 2 stroke back in the day. looked nice but i dont think it made the bike any faster... nor did ramming a bar down the center of the original pipe.:D

Look at Armours. I've just bought a complete system from them and delighted with the quality and price

Armour appear to be more about classic bikes rather than performance bikes.
But they do look nice.

I can answer the Thunderace Black Widow question - work perfectly on mine.  Remove fairing lower panels, disconnect the Exup cables, pop the new exhaust headers on, start bike, check for blowing, pop fairing back and ride bike.  Perfect.

When I say pop the exhaust headers on it is a bit of a struggle to line them all up correctly.  At the time it seemed like trying to puzzle out a Rubik's cube fitting them together as you need to get them at just the right angle but a little persistence and brute force always win 🙂

Re expansion pipes I had Allspeed fitted to my GT500 back in the 70s.  Not sure about any performance increase at all.  I've Higgspeed pipes on my current GT500 but can't tell you about relative performance as it never ran with the standard pipes as they were so corroded.  It has certainly lost some low down torque but makes up for it in noise - Got to love a 2 stroke on spannies going through the gears.  This is normally the way with aftermarket pipes - more noise and dependant on the R&D of the company supplying the pipes.  The biggest gain is probably the weight reduction as stock pipes are generally heavier than aftermarkets.

I'll keep my eyes open for you jcr as it'd be nice to see another Ace in Hampshire - a dying breed sadly.
