I totally agree with Dave. I never understood, why exhausts, event though in exc. condition, in the past commanded prices in excess of $2,000. I put it in the category of "price pimping" along the lines of pushing all prices for CBX parts to obscene levels because of commercial interests.
Both Delkevic and Sankei have put this in the correct perspective by offering brand new replicas for around $1,500 a set.
I don't deny that someone who paid $25,000 for his CBX would also pay $3,000 for an "as new" exhaust and Louis probably has several customers like that.
But somebody with a grounded and halfway realistic view of the CBX as a classic bike would not.
I am going to put a 1980 CBX together and it does not have an original exhaust. While I would love to have a -469- system for it, I would not pay more than $1,800 tops for an absolutely mint set.
There are plenty of really good condition Prolink exhausts available. They are actually better performing exhausts as far as street riding is concerned and they can be had for $1,000 to $1,200.-
To be understood is the exception
To be misunderstood is the rule.
