Wanted - 929 Erion Can

Bit embarrassed about posting this on my first day - but I am here for the long haul.

I've recently bought a 2001 929 'Erion Racing' edition. They're quite rare in UK and that presents a parts problem.

I want to obtain an original 'Erion Racing' end can. I am aware this could be a long shot, but I want to 'restore' this bike to its original spec. I also understand that if one is available I could be paying big money. (I'm doing the eBay trawling, etc)

It's a Scorpion carbon. It looks and sounds okay, but I am a stickler for originality. I also have the standard OEM large 929 can, but particularly seek the Erion version.

No!! That will conflict with my personality!

This will be an exercise in patience and continued eBay trawling. I've emailed Erion and Two Brothers and neither can help. Reckon I'd have more luck getting an exhaust for a '52 Vincent.

Re: Wanted - 929 Erion Can

I would think the only place youíll get one is either a forum member or eBay USA.

Yep, agree. I've also contacted a couple of decal manufacturers to see if they can replicate the labels on foil.

In the meantime, I got a surprise package in the post today. The seller sent me this:

Re: Wanted - 929 Erion Can

Still no success on the Erion can

In the interim, I've had a decal guy strike up some foil decals I can try. Once established the exact size to scale I'll source some light alloy or stainless steel and have them made. My only concern will be riveting into a carbon can.
Pics show original screen grab of Erion can and the decal proof on green background.

Re: Wanted - 929 Erion Can

They are really good, short term, unless you really are a nerd, who is going to tell the difference.

You should do a short production run, £15 each!

Re: Wanted - 929 Erion Can

Not sure there's enough Erion's around to make it viable. I know we're supposed to share the love and all, and I'd help a forum member, but general profiteering wasn't in my plans.

On the other side, not sure if I might be breaching Erion's copyright on reproducing this, so as long as I'm using it solely on my own machine I should be fine.

Yep, would surely consider that on a dry day.

Just tell me which bike you'd like me to bring.

Job's done. I bit over scale, but I can fine tune for a second run.
