Jørgen, a customer sent me some photos of his new stainless Denco replicas we made for him. Obviously he had them polished.

Thanks Jorgan. It's always fun for me to see them mounted on a customer's triple.

At this point, it's not even clear that Denco ever produced RR pipes. :?: I've seen one photo that appears to show a standard set that was modified by someone.

The plus side of that Jim is that you could therefore conceivably be the first and originator of these non-existent pipes, if in fact nobody can solidly document the RR's were ever mass produced. Bottom line is they would probably sell. :think:

At least several were made, but may have been copies.

Huh?

I've had 3 or 4 sets of Denco Roadrace pipes over the years. I have an original Denco brochure somewhere that lists them as "pipe kits" where they sold sections and those goofy rear hangers.... but I would bet good money there were sets that were welded at the Fremont shop. All of the pipes I've owned had "denco-quality" welds... Meaning, the welding looked like the SS and Killer welds. None of them were home-jobs, that is for absolute certain.

A couple of sets (that appeared to never have been altered/modified) even had DENCO stickers. Not to mention the gold-colored zinc plating of the manifolds matched regular street/killer pipes as well.

Denco RR pipes do exist.

This set of pipes are believed to be the last set of chambers to leave Denco AFTER they closed. A local guy (here in Minnesota) had ordered these pipes and had a set of Cylinders being ported when the bank closed the doors. Rusty Jones was able to get into the building, get the guys pipes and cylinders and finished the porting... I believe he then went on to start "Flo-Power".. The cylinders had "Denco King Cobra" stamped on them along side "Flo-Power".
