pics of cobra swept on 900 classic?

If anyone has the Cobra Swept exhaust on a classic, I would appreciate any pics. I have a custom, but with a classic rear fender so I'm just wondering what those pipes look like with that rear end. I've only seen them on a custom so far. Thanks in advance for any help!

Sorry for the bad pics - just took them for you.

Hard to see the fender with the bags, I know.

flywithlloyd, thanks for your help. I think these pipes look pretty sick. How loud would you rate them? In NH the law is 106dB and we have to get inspection every year, so I'm hoping they won't affect that.

Here some pics of different angles of my 08 classic with the cobra swept. I really like the way they look and especially the way they sound. You just need to be careful with your saddle bags were the pipe sweeps up a bit towards the back. I got rid of the bags you see in thes pics because they would slightly rub on the pipe. I baught the bike used and the saddle bags came on it. So I got some new saddleman saddlebags almost exactly like flywithlloyd.

Hey, no problem, man! I'm not very good with the noise level, but I'm gonna say much louder than stock, but not quite as loud as the Dragsters on my Custom! Hehehe!!

Thanx guys for the pics. I'm torn between these and the V&H slashcuts. The swepts just look so sick, but are also much more $. I wish I could compare how loud both were, you cant really tell on the computer. I want to sound better than these pathetic stock pipes, but dont wanna piss off the neighbors either.

Quieting baffels are even more $$$, so I'm taking that into consideration too.

I have them on my 900 custom and really like them.. They don't sound to be bad to me when riding but all my friends say they sound better then a Harley. If I could figure out to post a pic I would show thwart to you.

Well, they're certainly loud. If your neighbors are old and boring, they might not like it. But, I have a neighbor with a big truck and small kids that make noise. So, it's not in his best interest to complain, or I'd start complaining about that. LOL!

t's not that bad, though.
