Johnson End cans

Are these still available anywhere?

a quick googling just brings up links to the current PM - which I doubt will be of any help in the quest for end cans for 2 strokes.

This is of no help at all, but the first thing that popped into my head when I saw the title was that it's a euphemism for your testicles, your johnson end cans.

I think Tom Mac might be on about Bob Johnson, he use to make some real nice stuff, he use to be based near me, but haven't heard any murmers for years now, no help, but i once delivered an NR750 to him, so he could make some cans for it.

They are bloody lovely, well worth seeking out but thought they stopped making them in the late 90’s iirc?

Mid to late 90's had some good (above) and not so good firms trying to make a name for themselves,, our local one was called sidekick exhausts,, stopped a long time ago now though..

Iirc these were also Johnson

This is I think a real Pentax SP minus it's correct bodywork and Dymags.

Or it could be his stock R model just chucked together.

Whatever, Tanuki (once of this parish) was the owner. They were good times, great bikes going for not a lot of cash.

@ballbag liked that one....I think you're onto something there, a captive audience as it were.
