Readers Rides Post pics, specs and build-up stories of your vehicles - or even your garages here. Also interesting stuff about your 'daily drivers' etc. or interesting cars you have seen on your travels, even motors-based TV shows you can recommend. Please, no 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your 'business', links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled 'What's My Car Worth?' threads and "Who Can Sell Me A . . ." posts.

I'm repurposing a T3 rear engine support bar, picking up on the alfa stock mount. This will require some more tube work to tie it all together with the frame. I'll also triangulate the fork ends.
As you can see, I've also fitted a second silencer transversely. This is fixed to the engine support bar and has a flexi pipe to absorb vibrations. This second silencer takes out the low frequency.
Now the sound from the carbs dominates the sound. It will be interesting to hear it outside with bodywork in place. I really don't want it too noisy!
I have allowed a flange joint straight after the first silencer, so the second one can be removed and a straight pipe fitted..... You know, for "racing".........




Ignore the tempory radiator hoses!

I was gonna say thats an odd place for a radiator.

Exhaust looks good.
