Default Are Macs pipes gone forever ?

I have just found out Macs pipes are no longer available (the owner passed away recently sadly).
Is there any plan to restart production or is it really over ?
Thanks

I don’t have any inside info on Macs but being glow engine sales have been declining in recent years I doubt the pipes will be coming back.

His business was up to buy after his passing and not sure if anyone bought it. it was a good deal i though money wise but I didnt want to buy it as I can't weld or do much fabrication work. I heard maybe RJL will buy them but that was a couple months ago. Like everything you never know what you will miss until its gone. Now i want pipes and headers for many engines and will not be able to get them.....

Well, they are/were not the only company making these things, there is also justengines for instance that still have a lot to offer, including custom jobs; http://www.justengines.co.uk/acatalo...t_Systems.html

Around here, this guy is used a lot. Not sure about pipes and headers specifically though. http://www.bissonmufflers.com/en/index.html I had always wanted to make pipes and headers, but have retired, and it is good.

If RJL buys them then they are dead.
