Looks good, but if you ride at all hard, it won't be long before you find out why they call those "drag" pipes.

Near perfect in my book. If sparks fly- let em fly. It adds character!

It looks great. But my motto, is function, over form. In other words, it it makes it drag the ground, it is a potential wreck. I don't think I will get anyone to say that wrecking is good. If you have ever turned to the right and had the rear tire come off the ground, even once, the lesson has been learned. If you want the low stance, I say you get some pipes that sit a little higher. But then, that is my opinion, and it is not my bike.

Texas Rattler, I agree !I put a set of these on my 76 that I sold last year and it changes the whole look of the bike ,not to mention the center of gravity!

That's a ground pounder all right! Not in terms of scraping but being low slung and ready to fight. Great finished piece - enjoy the hell out of that beast!

Re: Looks frikkin; tight!

However, watch that inner primary. The angle of the dangle makes the chain eat on the primary every time you go over even a medium size bump. I finally put mine back at stock ride height, repaired my inner primary, put on a chain tensioner, and made a steel shoe to protect my inner primary.

I got sick and tired of the chain eatin my inner, can you tell?
