Custom exhaust... help

Does anyone know of any bike shops or automotive exhaust shops that do their own exhaust bending? Every shop I've called just bolts up replacement OE parts or wants to charge $150 for 18" of pipe with 1 bend. Rifuckingdiculous considering it's $5 worth of steel and 5 minutes on a hydraulic bender.

It's tough on price cause people want to charge u their hourly rate and since they prob can't get a full hour they come up with some ridiculous rate...

One thing about Michigan everyone wants work but majority don't want to work or do a side job...this isn't everyone but its a lot at least on the east side.

I live in Westland but would ride anywhere within a few counties for a good price. I'll keep this in mind as an option thanks. And it's an excuse to ride

I'm realizing this. The other issue I see is that all the out of work machinists don't have the tooling or machines or access to them anymore and the shops are so under water that it's not even worth doing work for some random walk in that needs an axle spacer.

I'll figure it out.

Speak to Rick's Custom Cycle, pretty sure he can do it with all turbo work he does, if not there is a muffler shop on Ford between Venoy and Merriman that I think said custom bending.
