If they did go down the center under the engine, than a short 30 or 60 degree bend to make them come out the side, behind passenger seat would be ideal, but behind rider seat would look sporty. Wonder how load open pipes on that engine would sound. The width of the front end does allow you top bring out the foot pegs as far as you need, key is long as all is safe and comfy for you.
    ...Now who is thinking outside the BOX, I like it, Thanks for stopping by Andy I like the input, BUTTT I can not afford the exhaust work and there is no room (cg) under the frame. My goal is to use as many parts as possible from the Rebel, My LOVE is in the building, strong and safe, Then build another something, (side car?)...

    I have not done it yet, but my TIG manual says I can weld razor blades together, crazy, but it can be done.

    Like anything it takes practice and the proper settings on the welder. Myself I am still learning the welding trade. Wife want me to practice more so I can do "yard art" for her, LOL..................

    history has proved you need to "seem to have misplaced my welder" unless she is going to sell it for BIG $
