Titanium welding and bending?

I'm looking for someone in Phoenix area or really anywhere that can weld and or bend titanium tubing. I'm redesigning the slip ons. Running both stacked and staggered down the right side. I already have the design and getting the material now to start on. I'm building the cans and everything fron scratch except the inner tubes for the cans. I just need a good welder and bender. After I get the prototype done i'm going to dyno and map it and if it does well then I may start fabricating them to sell. Hopefully all goes well.

Thanks, I just need a little help with the rest. I'm trying to take it a little slow to make everything turn out the way I want. As soon as I get done with a couple of bikes in the garage i'll get more time to play with this project.

the most easy way i can think would be to buy J-bends and cut and weld the joints with a TIG welder , just use a large gas lens on the torch. Good Luck
