I've read nothing but positive reviews about these pipes. I would be very interested in buying them, but I just can't get past the look of the squiggly bend at the front of the them. It looks like something that should be on a Bonneville, and doesn't really go with the Thunderbird styling.
You're the first person i heard say that, I thought i was alone in that. It bothers me too, and the bonnevilles that have it have always bothered me. It just doesn't look right to my eye. Then i saw bonnies with the dunstall looking ones and i new thats what i would have to have if i had a bonnie. I also have to say that those with TOR shorties have been equally happy with the sound and power. I for one think they are the best think i've done for the bike and that includes the BB kit ! Tho you gotta have both if you really wanna party.
