Thanks Steve. Are the fins really as funky as they appear in the photo?

I wonder if there are any more out there?

Dave

P.S. Good luck getting that broken tap out.

I have a set of 4 of these cylinders, the other 3 are not drilled or tapped, looks like someone started to drill and tap this one though.

Early 1929 KJ exhaust systems were attached to the cylinders by "set-screws" in the cylinders rather than by the "big nuts" on the pipes of later-1929, 1930 and 1931.

But I've never seen one.

Does anyone have a bike with set-screw exhaust? Or cylinders with the tapped holes for same?
