They're available either way - With chrome headpipes (which can turn blue) or in 100% stainless for an additional charge
The all stainless version will eventually turn a light golden color - But a quick wetsanding with #2000 wet or dry sandpaper during your annual bike cleanup will have them looking like new polished chrome again in just a few minutes
Junk? Of all the 6 into 6 pipes I've ever seen, these are the top of the heap. Great quality and they fit the bike like no others. Peter Gray has been making these for many years and he's always improving on them. They're designed to come apart easily, but if you want them 100% leak free, Peter recommends you use a little muffler sealant at the joints when you put them together - I've had mine on and off the bike several times and thanks to their well thought out design, it's only a few minute job to remove or reinstall them. Instead of muffler sealant, I wrap the headpipes with a little aluminum AC duct tape before I slide them into the collectors which makes then nearly leak free and yet still able to come apart easily
