Hotrod Ripped Exhaust System For Evo & Twin Cam Engines


Frank Serrano will tell you that “this exhaust system roars like the devil himself is coming to you…” So, I let you decide if you want to rip the streets with these high decibels pipes. For Evo or Twin Cam engines, it’s a 4-step design starting of course at 1.75″ at the cylinder heads, then going to 2″, then again to 2.25″ to end up at 2.50″ for a true hot rod look.

They are offered in 4 different finishes: silver ceramic (coated inside and outside), chrome, satin or glossy black. Limited time offer from $575 to $625.00. Call Frankie on my behalf at 786-975-6085 or visit FSD Exhausts to see more models.

    With all due respect to Frank and Eddie varations of drag racer pipes have been around forever, but as good as they look they might be called ammunition pipes as when you rip thru the streets at decibels height your just giving ammunition to those that are voting sound out of the motorcycle scene.

    cyril nice site but tell me why would you help in a knockoff scam you ,know these pipes are trotta’s design. Frank went to work for eddie and then left with eddie’s designs, i’m sure you have been a victim of knockoff artist also …..and tell me why would you buy a knockoff at that money when you can get them at trotta’s with heat shields at the same price wtf cyril……………try to keep your blog at least some what on the level and due your research …………..johnny moore

    Johnny. I acknowledge that at time of publication I didn’t know the “story” behind these pipes. If there is controversy, as you can see in the comments above, both parties are free to express their points of view. It’s what my Blog is all about. My position is of course to buy this exhaust system from the original designer, whoever he is.

    Hey All,

    I think there has been questions raised here that only ET of Frankie can answer. Has anyone being so critical herein given any thought that maybe ET has given Frankie a license to produce these pipes? Possibly these pipes were Frankie’s to begin with and he may have granted ET permission to be a licensee???? Who knows, certainly not me and most certainly not anyone else on this blog either. What do you say we let Eddie and Frankie figure this out?

    Just my 2 cents worth.

    So, I have a question: At what point does copying ideas from another builder become unacceptable?

    Cos as far as I can work out 95% of the parts and bikes out there are so very similar to each other anyway. Someone comes out with new idea or more usually a tweak or refinement to an old look, and you all (OK, most of you) browse the pics or check the bike out at a show and take this or that element for your next design, especially if they are popular with the buying public. Bike building fashion seems to be very fad centric. There is only so much you can do to be different on a bike anyways. Like these pipes, OK, they do look the same and the timing seems odd, but I have a neighbor who has a set of (home made or bought i have no idea) pipes that also look almost identical. His are 4 or 5 years old. older than the ET design.

    OK, My question to everybody is what if the employee has the Idea for the pipe or product, and the owner of the company says yea, yea, lets build’em and I’ll put MY name on them.So the so called builder just made bank off the employees idea. A lot of what the general public doesn’t know is that some, if not MORE of these builders CAN’T fabricate and they sure as hell can’t weld for shit. A lot of the so called builders hire the people to do the work for them, then jump in front of the camera and say look what I built. The public has no idea what this industry is all about. It’s all about how one person can screw over another person for a F…N nickel.

    MIKEOUT; It is true that a lot of builders use their employees for ideas but so does Ford,GMC and almost all businesses. If an employee helps to create a product it belongs to the business owner. The only exeption would be if the employee created it out side of the workplace, using his own tools ,materials and ideas. It sounds like you think that would be unfair but remember when the employee has a bad idea and it cost the business money the employee does not lose his pay check. But the business owner does, is that fair? And lets not forget that it is the semi-famous builders name that sells these parts if you called them Joe Blows X part nobody would want to buy them. It is putting the builders name and reputation on the parts that make them desirable. If you don’t believe me just try and make a part and sell it. Better yet buy 10000 t-shirts and put your name on them and see how many sell at bike week. OCC sells those t-shirts by the thousands. If the name does not make a difference than just try to sell shirts with your name on them. Branding is a huge factor that someone with little or no business experiance understands or appreciates but trust me it is just as important as the part it self. Don’t get this twisted I don’t think that it is fair for a company to steal from their employees,If an employee has a great idea and brings it to the owner and that part is made as a result they should share in the profits. But I don’t think that would be the case if the employee was being paid for those ideas. And if an employee leaves a company and takes ideas that were created in that company that could be stealing. Most large companies have their employees sign a agreement that states if they leave the company, they leave with out taking any knowlaged gained by working for that company. Those agreements are usually called no-compete contracts and usually have a set time period such as 2 years from the time you leave their employ. After the time period has passed you can do as you wish. I don’t know anything about the pipes and who or how they are marketed that would be a question for the two guys selling the same design not me, I am just trying to help you understand how employees do help create, but those employees are not being taken advantage of just because the owner makes more money if an idea works.

    JMO, Mikeout,

    Every employee that has ever worked for me, with any company I have ever owned, has executed a Non Compete-Non Disclosure Confidentiality Agreement or they are not hired.

    Likewise, over the years I have learned the hard way that it is as important to have any possible outside manufacturing style vendors execute the same documents before any drawings or designs are shared or discussed. Again, if the vendor balks at signing the agreement you can bet your last dollar this person intents to screw you …. no sign, no business from me …. No exceptions!

    JMO ….. Once again I have to agree with you …… this is getting to be old! Damn!

  16. 16 Frankie Pipes Sep 27th, 2009 at 5:46 pm

    Hey guys it is Frankie Serrano here. I just found out about this blog and wanted to give my 2 cents. First – Eddie and I were and remain friends. We continue to talk and I give him a ‘shout out’ on my website in the About Us section. What you all don’t know is that I started several exhaust’s companies between leaving Eddie and starting FSD Exhausts – I was used and robbed by all partners! That is why I am now my OWN partner with MY designs – production and one off pipes alike. I also do ALL of the welding and fabrication which is why I back my products 100% in craftsmanship, quality and performance!
    Secondly, If you are comparing my Hotrod Ripped to the D3’s on Eddie’s website you should know these are his “NEW” exhausts – so who came out before who! And if you are talking about the D2’s there are major differences for example my pipes which I re-designed after getting robbed by an ex-partner who is still selling them though they are my designs 3 years ago are 4-stepped!
    Go to my website and you will see just a small sample of the one-off exhausts I have done along with my production pipes and new exhausts including the 2 Nasty and Fuck Off and within the next week you will see additional new designs that I will be coming to the market with.
    This industry is what it is – I am just a guy with a small shop that has a passion for designing and fabricating exhausts and enjoy wowing and making my customers happy with the product they purchased!
    Keep it real!

    Having dealt with this pathological lier Frankie, disregard everything he says, except his ego rants, since those are the only truths he speaks. He robbed Eddie Trotta, and DOES NOT EVER talk to him since leaving Eddie in the middle of the night with 30 sets of Eddie’s pipes! Since I got this from the horses mouth, trust me, he only mentions Eddie’s name for recognition it gives and nothing else. Couple that with the 8 or 9 guys I know who’d had their Frankie I’m the Greatest’s pipes break at this weld or that weld, or that they scraped on the gorund to where making a right turn was a joke. Don’t even get me into the lack of customer service they got after their problems. He get’s your money and then it’s screw you.
    Doesn’t it make sense that when someone spends more time talking his way out of a hole. even on his own website for God’s sake, that it should make you think twice as to who the perpetrator and who the victim really is? Trust me, FSD is no victim, he’s a crook.

  18. 18 Bud Apr 24th, 2010 at 12:37 pm

    Yeah, I’ve heard this too. I’ve yet to hear one good thing about him in the local biker community, be it from riders, club members, shops, you name it. The list of people he’s screwed over is longer than I95 from Maine to Florida! I wouldn’t touch his crap with a 10 foot pole. I hear he can’t even keep a location and has moved in and out of like 5 shops in the last year. I guess he doesn’t pay his bills either.

    hey guys, I will tell you my story about frankie serrano. It started back in nov. 2009. I wanted to order custom pipes for my 2010 harley. I talked to him and he said it would be no problem and I even told him if he wanted to make sure that they fit I would be up to shipping them back and forth till we got them to work. He told me that would work. He told me to send him pictures of my bike so he knows hows to style them. I didn’t hear from him for a month and a half. So I emailed him and they told me that it was a little back up at the shop, so I said ok. I waited another month with no phone calls or emails from them. When I called them they said it will only be 2 more weeks. I waited another month no word from frankie. I called a number of times from then on, and every time it was a different excuse, such as your motor is different then the other motors, the cremic chome coaters screwed up your pipes, there was a scrach on them. Finally I told them I wanted my money back, so they told me if I don’t have my pipes by a certain date that they would refund my money” I still have the voice mail from this call”. Guess what, nothing came. When I called them again they said something happened they couldn’t ship them out. So I started to call about my pipes daily until they finally called one day and said “here is your tracking number. So finally in the end of may a box shows up at my door. Your thinking thats the end, well its not, LISTEN LOUD AND CLEAR to this joke. I opened my box and look in and guess what I found, Not a set of pipes i found one pipe. I mean one pipe that only is for one cyclinder. I called fsd exhaust right away and frankie got on the phone and said thats all they had ready for now. I started looking at the pipe they set me and the finish was garbage. He told me to send that pipe back and they would chrome them for me. Well guess what it now is july 22 2010. I have no pipes and now they won’t answer my phone calls emails or anything. So now I guess I going need to sue them for my money and go though all that hassle just because Fsd exhaust and frankie serrano ripped me off. I’m not the first to say something like this and I probly won’t be the last. If anyone has any questions or frankie would like to talk to me., my email is

    Unfortunately i will have to agree with Scott. I ordered a set of pipes for my Harley on July 1st. I talked to Sarah and Frankie, and Sarah said it would be no problem to have my pipes delivered to me by August 6th so I could leave for Sturgis on August 7th. I told them I needed them sooner than that and they said no problem. Here it is September 13th and still no pipes. I’m afraid I have been taken by this company. I am a calm understanding man but holy sheep sh#@t!!!! I talked with Exotic Choppers and they told me they wouldn’t have pipes ready in time so I didn’t order from them. I appreciate that but now I wish I had ordered from them. Thanks for your honesty Exotic Choppers!! FSD did not keep their word!! Minimal and poor customer service after they take your money!! I’m a fool!! I hope you strive to clear your reputation Frankie!! It needs some cleaning up!! If I get a kick a** set of pipes that last a life time then that would be great. But who knows at this point? I won’t reccommend FSD to anyone. Someone please tell me about a GOOD experience with FSD!!!!

    He is still taking money from people and making up excuses, I just made the mistake of giving him my money in December 30th 2010 and he told me he had a set in stock and would send them out to get ceramic coat done. Its February 12th 2011 and I am calling him everyday now, going to call my credit card company and dispute the charges and the BBB DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM THIS GUY HE WILL ROB YOU BLIND AND EVERYTHING THAT COMES OUT OF HIS MOUTH IS A LIE.
