Pop Art

A little bit of bike-nerd humour and appreciation.

The thought and investment put into a relatively low volume part such as this pipe is incredible. The contrast of the high technology and cost of the hydro-formed tubing, and the presumably hand welded tip are the kind of details that have earned Yoshimura the respect of road riders and racers alike for over 50 years.
