wish theyd do it in a 200mm =/ bike is looking good though.
It鈥檚 worth a try calling Graves direct and asking if they will make you exactly what you want. I鈥檓 guessing what you want is a 200mm carbon silencer with a 60mm exit diameter 鈥渃arbon beauty cap鈥. They have standard pairings listed for sale on their website (and retailers websites) which show a 200mm carbon silencer with a 60mm titanium tapered end cap. It鈥檚 nothing for them to grab one of these off their shelf and swap out that cap for a 鈥渃arbon beauty cap鈥 (that鈥檚 what they call it). They likely would sell it to you at MSRP with no additional cost for the cap swap. They made me this 265mm titanium with carbon cap for $575. I am in the process of having some custom finishes done on these.

The silencer came with GRAVES鈥 red and yellow logo sticker, which I didn't care for, so I peeled it off and replaced with a black and white one. I thought the black and white one looked pretty good, but I took it off eventually as I'm planning to do some custom logos. Titanium can very easily be brushed, blasted, polished, and/or anodized. I was inspired by some surface finishing work I'd seen done on some titanium bicycle frames, and decided I'm going to play around a little bit with these 3 blank titanium canvasses I have here to work with. Gotta have something to do over the winter. Anyhow, I'll probably end up keeping my favorite and try to sell the others. LOL, maybe you'll be interested in one of them!
