Has anyone seen/heard/or own a pair of Emgo Dunstall replicas...they sell for $46 on Dennis Kirk and JC Whitney. Just wondering about quality and sound. Any suggestions on another fairly inexpensive setup? I like the Burgess style too. Thanks!

These in particular:

Gray, I don't knoe about the dunstalls but I did buy the EMGO burgess style (direct replacement for the 60's twins) and they bolted right on to the existing brackets on my 04 bonnie. The cost was $80 a piece then ordered the adaptor pipes from Belacourse. Total cost was around $200, they are fairly loud but the chrome and quality is very good (better than my stock mufflers). You can get these through most vintage Triumph shops or check the EMGO website for loca dealers.

Wife has them on her bike:

Sound is very nice. More bass and a little more mellow than my Emgo Reverse Cone shortys. Quality is good, the welds look nice.

I've had the Dunstall replicas on my 72 for years now and they held up fine. Mellow tone, not too loud. Removeable baffels if you want more sound.

I have a set of JCW Dunstall replica's on my 05 T100. They are loud. I ride with ear plugs and a full face helmet and they are still to loud for me. But they are no where as loud as my D&D's.

The video clip of asphyx9 wife's bike doesn't really let you hear how loud the pipes are, because she is riding at a steady speed. They get very loud upon acceleration, they also make a wonderful sound upon deceleration. A snarling aggressive don't mess with me sound.

But they are relatively cheap set of pipes that should hold up well and do look good, but they are heavy.
