Lookin' Good!

What make of pipes are those? I was looking for the same but couldn't find any even used. I bought a pair similar but I haven't installed them yet. I really like the looks and the length of yours.

Keep an eye on those tires. I got an old 1981 KZ750 from a guy who had it sitting in his garage for 8 years. The tires looked brand new, but oxidation got to them. I took it out for a hundred-mile loop ride, the last part of it 15 miles on a freeway at 85 MPH. When I got home, tires looked like I had driven through white paint. I looked at the rear tire and it had worn away all the tread and there was a big skunk stipe down to the belts and cords. Rubber rot had set in, and it is common for old tires, especially if it sat outside under a tarp. Needless to say, it was a bit unnerving given that I had just minutes before going way too fast for those tires.
