As a follow up to my somewhat crazy Ti painting thread, here are some pics of the used Moriwaki Ti cans I have.
Notes on the pics:
- Titanium cans themselves look great. I'm not going to polish them up all pretty just for some quick pics, this is pretty much how they came off the bike.
- The color in the pictures looks more rich than in real life. At least to my eyes Ti looks a little more dull in real life, probably due to the exposure set to auto on the digicam.
- The drain holes on the cans have pissed out a little rust. Moisture + packing having a couple seasons of riding on them. It cleans off with a little scrubbing but will probably come back eventually. I never really noticed when they are mounted since it's on the bottom of the can out of sight but I thought I'd point it out. The leaky rust drips by the rivet on the endcap also seem to scrub off. To make them perfect again you could get them re-packed.
- The mounting springs are looking a little rough. Cleanable, maybe, or easily replaced if you want shiny springs. The mid pipe pieces are stainless, just a bit dirty from carbon buildup, and the carbon fiber heat shields look fine.
I'd like to see $300 for them (+ship) Sound reasonable?
If anyone's seriously interested, those who have previously PMed me will have first priority.
