We have a 3 phase outlet with 5 pins mounted on the outside of our workshop for the EV community to use on their trips between Christchurch and Nelson.
Mark Nixon installed it for his Renault Clio and the general EV community.
Electric motorcycles could eventually put me out of business but somehow I think the thunder of a well tuned motor will be with us for a while yet!! When I chose to produce stainless products exclusively, apart from vintage chrome pipes, I was warned that perhaps I would do myself out of repeat business... Didn't happen, I'm still going...
Phone or email us if you are planning to recharge on your trip.

We took Harris Pipes over completely December 2014 and things have been going smoothly since then.
Of course we have always produced Harris Pipes systems so not much changed except we felt this website was the one which suited us and our customers the best so the old Harris Pipes website has been taken offline.

This time to hospital in June 2015 it was a swollen eye requiring an urgent operation the next morning to remove a swoollen blood vessel in the socket which almost pushed the eyeball out. Had stitches but now no scar after months of healing.

Just last month I was whisked off to hospital in a chopper after falling ill with suspected pneumonia.
The meds thought I had a nasty virus and my liver function was a bit wonky. I was in isolation for 2 days until they determined no virus but a nasty bacteria in the right lung. I was in Christchurch Public Hospital for a week.
I survived TB in1989 and looks like I beat this one too... watch this space....

Become self employed like me.
Check the 'About Us' page to see how I work and live in the beautiful New Zealand countryside. I feel very privileged to have this life style.
You could become independent also with the right opportunity.
We have added a page which links to job opportunities from around the world which could be just the thing for you.
UPDATE: After a trial we cancelled the page as our website needs to stay focused to maintain a high ranking on search engines.

Great Motorcycling Routes
As outlined in the 'About Us' page our workshop is located next to one of the best motorcycling routes in New Zealand. That is, the Lewis Pass Highway which sweeps through magnificent mountain scenery. Nothing beats the sound of a bike wearing one of our exhausts as it thunders past our workshop, often with a friendly toot. Sometimes I feel envious but my work must be done.
Adventure Riding near the main divide
It's not just the sealed roads that make for a good ride. The March 2011 Kiwi Rider magazine has an article about adventure riding on the St James Station which traverses spectacular mountain passes and valleys ( which I have a view of out my front door)
The ride comes recommended by Racing Dave who rode 150km from Hanmer Springs. He says to phone DOC tel 03 313 -0820. Apparently the permit process has been made simple.

A decent sound can make you
Feel like you're riding a REAL bike.
I was talking to a customer recently who had just had one of our sports silencers fitted to his "97 Ducati Monster 600 . He made a comment which hit the nail on the head - he said he fells like he's "riding a real bike now" after having endured the sewing machine sound of the factory pipes since he bought the bike new 15 years previously. Having his kids grow up and move out - along with the missus -it was time to renew his riding experience
And what better way to achieve that feeling than to fit tunable stainless silencers made by us. these silencers have a butterfly controller built-in which you can adjust with a tool in a few seconds to change the sound from loud to quiet.
We like to keep the sound socially acceptable even when on a loud setting, at least to our ears anyway!! our catch phrase is "Not too loud, not too quiet, just right.' because we know that's what you the customer want.
In most cases we get it right keeping the sound within reasonable limits and yet still releasing that awesome deep rumble which modern factory exhausts mangle into a crappy sewing machine noise.
While we like to be a responsible law abiding company we can also cater for those who want an even louder sound. But remember the control is really in how far you twist the throttle and when and where you do it.
Get the chicks
What better way to be noticed by younger women than announcing your presence with a deep sound.
our silencers provide you the means by sound, looks and power. This equates to:
Be heard, Be noticed and draw babes like a magnet. No use having a grunty bike if all you can do is squeak.
And above all else that deep throaty rumble makes your riding experience FEEL great.!
