If anyone is interested in picking up the torch on this, I have approximately 30 new manifold flanges sitting on the shelf I had laser cut before I pulled back on production.
More like 20

Mark: Nice rabbet joints on your shelf units.
Thanks, but I can’t take credit for those. My best friend from college, the one I wrote the Elephant Man essay about, made those shelves for my mother in law.

A small footnote of history: when I bought the property across the street from my shop 42 years ago, the original plan was to open a cabinetry business with him.

Seriously? If you are serious about taking this on, you should buy them all.
Did these sell? If not, I’d like a price (DM) on all of them.

Then I just have to find a Downey header, and get a few prototypes done to work out the kinks and get it quoted.

Then the rest is working with Mark on getting the other pieces made. (Not clear if he makes them or I make them under license or what.)

We do a lot of work with a couple metal shops, and bringing back NLA stuff is what I love.

This is the most recent design to head to small volume production. It’s replacements for the NLA parts on an 80-series dual filler neck. Not shown: the machined shaft.

To ANYONE who is seriously interested in moving this forward, please honor my signature line and my four decade commitment to the old school by reaching out to me via the telephone.😊

These headers are the best seat-of-the-pants bolt on mod I've installed, along with a 2.5" exhaust.
20 years old and still going strong.
