Stainless dual exhaust

Does anyone make this? I can find siames all over, but no standard exhaust. *conf*

G'day coater87.
I had mine made by this mob  http://www.dropbears.com/o/overlander/classic.htm  30 odd years ago. There'd have to be a motorcycle exhaust place over there that could copy your originals.

 Wow,

 Its hard to believe I can find every fitting and other badingus in stainless for the A series, but not exhaust pipes. *sad2*

 I am learning that restoring a BSA is much different from say A Harley Davidson. With those, you can find reproduction parts that are high priced, but fit and look perfect.

 With these, you are better off beating old parts into submission even if they are darn-near completely worn out, then buy 99% of the reproduction parts out there.

 I wonder why that is?

several reasons I'd guess but two might be

1. volume of sales
2. Fine motorcycles that HDs maybe well be never the less a sizeable proportion of buyers seem  to include the Fashion concious shall we say, who have the wealth to follow the trend.
No offence to any HD riders here, they obviously have a love of Motorcycles being A owners

1959 Rocket Gold Flash - blinged and tarted up  would have seizure if taken to  Tesco

I'm amazed that everything needed is still available for these bikes that went out of production 52 years ago and were built by a company that is long gone. Same with the Vincent  ( even older) and the Norton.
This great parts availability allows us to actually use these bikes as intended rather than just parade around town now and then.

Armours in the UK have full range of s/steel exhaust pipes and silencers, been on my Super Rocket now for last 4 Years, good fit and quality, and competitively priced. Appearance is of chrome, very pleased.
