"Mission Impossible 3" exhaust?

I spoke with Sean at BC this morning about a vid on their new Retro Predators for Scrams, and we also discussed the possibility of their doing togas like they just recently offered for Bonnies. Since they still have the jig for the pipes they did for the "MI 3" scramblerized Bonnie, he'd already discussed the possibility of BC producing those with the higher-ups. Of course it's something that'd have to be demand driven, so if any of you Scram or Bonnie owners love that left\right classic togas look like I do, it be nice to show BC we're interested!

With an exhaust budget of $700, I had planned on getting aftermarket cans, probably the BC Retro Predators, to install when I get my Scram. However, if BC could do this full split toga exhaust for a reasonable price, I could definitely be pursuaded to dig a little deeper, especially if nice heat shields for the mufflers were available.

Here's a pic Casper posted last year of the MI 3 bike for reference-

Any takers?

With heat shields for a passenger, yes, I'd be interested.

"Not designed for passenger use."

I saw those MI-3s They wouldn't work for me 'cause they're not for EFI bikes, nor are they recommended for passengers (too short maybe?). They only mention fitting Bonnies and Thruxes too, but I'm not sure why they wouldn't work. I emailed Dale at SS recently asking whether he was going to offer any new Scrambler exhaust and he said he wasn't be 'cause Scrams didn't sell well enough. For Bonnies and Thruxes though, price is sure good if they're decent quality.

I've got a set of the Specialty Spares high pipes in black ceramic. I had been in contact with Dale since they were in the process of fabbing them up. They are on the bike right now, though without mufflers and with 12" drag baffles installed. This is too loud for my taste, plus I had wanted the MI:3 look. So, I've got a set of '63-70 Togas on order with Norman Hyde (TRS31's). I plan to shorten the head pipe and bolt on the togas so they terminate at an aesthetically pleasing point. This is all on an '06 Scrambler. I believe the passenger use issue is because the pipes use the rear footpeg mounts for attachment. They are also without shielding. However, this could rather easily be remedied with some fabrication.
I know there is an old BSA A7/A10 '58+ muffler that was used on high pipes (with repros available). This had two bosses welding on for a attachment of a heatshield made specifically for them. These mufflers had similar profiles to the burgess and togas. I'm currently considering adding the shields that were originally made for these, to the togas.....but don't two-up so don't know if it's worth it as of now.
I did add bonnie side covers, as the scrambler right side cover is halved to work with the oem pipes.
I would imagine any high is not ideal for use with a pillion, but universal heatshields are readily available, as are those that can be procurred from a different application and made to work.
