Former: Sandblasted Horn
Product Number: 002-017-0191
While attaching a superlative like "special" or "very special" to a Former pipe usually has all of the informative usefulness as listing "sporty" as a Ferrari attribute, the adjective finds a home here; Former does not create a great deal of Horns, much less ones which feature a sandblast (this is only our third) and, smooth or otherwise, this is only the second one we have had which favored a speeder execution over the more conventional “tube” form.
Displaying a breathless sense of balance, elongation, and exacting proportionality, I can almost imagine Former creating this study in implied movement, with a small grin playing on his face and something akin to “Ok Kids, this is how it’s done” dancing in his mind. If he didn’t, maybe he should have; speeder Horns simply do not get any better than this.
