    Need help identifying maker of exhaust pipes

    These pipes were on an airhead a friend purchased. They have a deep, throaty sound. There are no brand markings and I am hoping you may recognize them. I want a set!!

    The orientation of the photos is wrong but the pipes are in full view.

    Thanks for your help.

    I didn't find any MCM mufflers like that. I thought they might have been MAC Staintunes but they're not. I can't seem to find any mufflers with a reverse cone on the end that is nicely finished like that. About the closest I could find was something for a old Ducati 900 Monster.

    Any stamping on the bottom center where they attach to the header pipe?

    No stampings anywhere. Two of us looked closely.

    Maybe a Bub Conti replica. Generally seen on early to mid 70's Ducati 750-900 S and SS models. To me they look cool. Probably loud, not so cool. Just a guess.

    You win the prize!! I did a search and found some pictures of them.

    Thanks for your keen observation.

    Back in the day; 1990-1999, I was a curator to a collection of vintage and historic race/rally/street cars. These included hi-end American, British, German, Italian, Japanese, and others. Over a 100 cars and over a 100 motorcycles. All good stuff. I learned a lot. The boss owned a good selection of those cool Ducati S and SS models. Those Conti mufflers really stood out. Glad I could help.
