Handmade from titanium, the catch can connects to the over flow on the radiator and is designed to capture coolant when the bike gets hot.

Notice the bars, very early Answer Products units, my Countdown clock-roll chart and a VDO with a little rubber fairing I installed. Why? I saw a picture of Dick Burleson running one on his bike!
