I dont remember where I read it, if it was here or somewhere else.

 But the poster said the Fekked pipes do not fit either, and they also complained about the service. I hope someone here has ordered and fitted a set and chimes in. I hope they fitted right up, because its time I ordered an exhaust.

 Mine is a 58 also, it seems like its hard to order things because 58 is treated like a change over year for everything. *conf*

I got my pipes and silencers (about 2 years ago) for my A10 58 from Fekked and the pipes L and R did not fit I had to take them to my locale exhaust shop to bend them a bit to make them fit (cost to much to send back from OZ) not perfect but OK and they were also to long had to cut a bit off the pipes.
Having said that my mate down the road a bit got a set of pipes and silencers for his A10 59 about the same time from Fekked and they fitted perfectly, as some one said that 58 changeover time things got a bit grey *pull hair out*

My bike is a 58 also.
I recall that when I removed my silencers some time ago, I noticed that the pipes had B33 stamped on them not A7. but they fit perfectly.

The A10 pipes and silencer changed for 1958 season with frame numbers starting FA7 - the bikes with full width iron hubs.

First illustration from 1958 catalogue and second from 1957 - you can see the difference.

You cannot mix parts - 1958 pipes must go with 1958 silencers and pre 1958 pipes with pre 1958 silencers.

Hi RDFella, I'm interested in seeing how well your changes "look", would you be able to do a before/after pics with a closeup of the mods please?? The reason is I have old Armours (new) pipes/silencers bought years ago for my resto and have yet to fit them, but I know (now) that I will have trouble because I bought 1956 pipes and 1958 silencers  *sad2*, not realizing all those years ago they were matched sets  *eek*. I wont be fitting them yet, but am keen to have some options available for when I do, thanks
