    Futura H pipe order information

    Hey guys, we're finally there with the H pipes. I can't thank everyone who chipped in from the goodness of their hearts enough, nor can I thank Mark of Mark's Fab Shop enough for being willing to set up a jig and keep open a low-numbers production item for us to buy whenever we want, and not have to wait for group buys that can be so iffy on happening.

    Bear in mind, these pipes have not been fabricated with dyno numbers or pure performance in mind. They should certainly net you an improvement over the breadbox, though tuning is definitely necessary for that to happen. The primary benefits are weight reduction and vastly improved sound (much deeper and barkier)

    The mounting is 100% OEM and retains the mounting springs and centerstand stop tab, though the bolt tying it to the frame has been eliminated. You will need to reuse your own exhaust springs and centerstand rubber stop.

    Prices:
    $297 for mild steel
    ceramic coating add: $90
    $433 for stainless steel.
    add 8% tax for California sales, no tax or out of state.
    shipping $25 to $35 in USA
    Uk or out of usa shipping (email me for quote) send me address. If you guys in europe want to save on shipping, mark found a flat rate (box size doesn't matter, so he can pack as many as he needs to for this price) for $250. So if 5 or 6 of you are willing to buy together, that'd be very inexpensive shipping
    Shipping box size: 26x 18 x 16
    There will be a 4-6 week delivery time, these are custom made to order and some times have other jobs that take Priority.
    Payment options: discount if paid by check or bank transfer $288 for mild steel and $420 for stainless

    If you want a pipe or have questions, email Mark directly, I'm simply the guy who got this ball rolling; I have no affiliation with Mark, I am profiting in no way from this, so any questions would best be directed to him (if you learn something you think is relevant, however, let me know and I'll add it into this post)

    If you are interested in a pipe that can be broken down for shipping via a flange in the longer pipe coming from the front cylinder head, make sure you mention it in your order

    Orders should be made with Mark at Marksfabshop@gmail.com

    If you do decide to order a pipe, do me a favor and mention it in this thread when you order one! I'd love to see how many people do this.

    I posted a video of mine with the prototype, but I'm running pure straight pipes right now so all you year is my camera's microphone trying to turn itself inside out.

    As soon as mark's got the stainless prototype done and the measurements for the bender taken, I'm returning the mild steel prototype to him and it should be for sale at a discount

    I've ordered mine! It's coming in two parts to make the shipping costs lower. I did try and get a UK group buy going but it didn't take, so I've gone ahead and ordered a stainless set.

    Mark was really helpful over e-mail. He's a great guy for doing this, so I hope more people take advantage of this.
