Sorry to Hijack your topic, but I had the same question. I purchased my 03 awile back and was told the exhaust was Ladybird. After some research I know thats not true. So what is it? Thanks in advance!
It may be carbon exhausts of some manufacturer that broke up and the cylindrical/oval part of the can was replaced by aluminum tubing of the same diameter/circumference. So you only have the ends of the cans to identify it by.
The Tide bike is in my garage, I bought it awile back. No real story other than a excellent painter doing a little project to show his skills. I think its gonna be my primary track bike as I really like the way it carves and the torque for a big guy! I just set the suspension sag and its ready to go! I'll have it at NJMP Thunderbolt in June.
^ Ah, very cool - nice to hear about how the Tide fairings were painted. Post up some other pics of the paint/bodywork if you don't mind (perhaps in another thread ? - apologies to coffeymax for the slight thread hijack heh).
And madbuyer, App State was an embarassment in the form of a nightmare, thanks to a bad coach...LOL
