My bike project came with the original exhaust pipes cut off. I don't know why they cut them off. They may have been a rusty mess. The rest of the bike was a rusty mess.

Anyway, I have been getting the bike back together but I cringe at the thought of installing a nice new set of chrome pipes. I am really looking for someone's old take-off set to match the current look of the bike. please let me know what you have and what you want for them.

No not yet. I did find some take off low pipes on ebay. They are off a 1969 and I am wondering about fitment. It seems that my 1966 was rather a bastard transitional year. They were in the process of revamping and re marketing the sleepy little T100 500 to the race winning Daytona.

'66 low pipes mount to the frame, low down in the front.

'68-on pipes mount to the stud that goes through the front engine mount and the plates that mount it all to the frame.
Those pipes also used an "L"-shaped chrome intermediate mount between the pipe and that engine mount.

I think the '67 pipes mount the same as the '66 ones.

If the mounting tabs on the pipes are higher up, between the cylinder head and the lower bend, they are '68-on pipes.
If the mounts are rear of the bottom bend they are the earlier ones.

As you say, '66 was a "transition year," with a lot of one-year-only parts, but it was a very good looking bike.

I was thinking of buying this set. If I needed a tab I could have one welded on. I am not looking for restoration good looks just function. (And I would prefer if they didn't fall off in flight.)

It looks like a decent deal as long as the mounting tabs on the pipes are present...which unfortunately aren't in the supplied pics. Easy for the seller to clarify though. If the tabs are present, I would say to go for it.

Because the pipes aren't pretty or intended to be so it would be and easy fix to have the proper tabs welded on.

Sure would. However, wouldn't you like to know if it already has the tabs to save you the trouble?

I went ahead and purchased the used set for a 69 model off eBay. I will report on it when it comes in.

My used set arrived from eBay I paid a little under $200 for two low pipes and two period bullet mufflers. They look far better than I would have dreamed and far better than I was looking for.

What size diameter are the spigots in the head. I have set of decent downpipes and shorty mufflers on my 1970 650 tiger that may work. I am in Texas
