Hi everyone,
I write from Italy.
recently in my garage, in addition to a 1800 and a 1500, is arrived a beautiful 1100
The bike is all stock, with the exception of the exhausts.
In Europe, unfortunately the original exhausts for 1100 are hard to be found.
I'm looking for exhausts VERY similar to stock, and on the net I found some exhausts called Barracuda.
Unfortunately I read on this forum that the seller is not trustworthy and very rude.
I kindly ask if anyone can help me find a seller for these exhausts.
Thanks a lot!

If the seller is Sabre cycle do not even attempt to order from them especially since you are outside the US.
Barracuda does not list exhaust for any Goldwing on their web site.

I don't know anything about the product or the seller, but...
99.7% positive Feedback is pretty darn good for me, and their store front is not a casual fly by night outfit.

Thank you for the answers.
Marving is produced near me in Italy, but unfortunately the shape of the mufflers is different from OEM.
I contacted DavidSilver, but sadly the Motad exhausts you see in the advertising ad are no longer available.
In Italy, historic motorcycles that are not 100% OEM will soon no longer be able to be used on the road.
a historical GoldWing, not 100% oem, will have to be kept in the garage or thrown in the trash.

that is totally unfair, and I cannot see a valid reasoning for that attitude

Do you really think the untrained eye will be able to distinguish the difference between the Motad and the Marving?

Absolutely yes, and I'll explain why ...
Historic motorcycles (considered highly polluting) must be subjected to an examination board, made up of professionals who are experts in the sector.
In order to pass the exam the bike must be 100% as original. A simple non-original rearview mirror will not pass the exam.
I've even heard of motorcycles failing exam for a simple sticker.
Once the exam has been passed, an update of the registration certificate will be issued.
In the absence of a valid certificate, road circulation will be prohibited in the coming years.
This is what is happening in northern Italy.
From 2 years, the circulation of 2-stroke motorcycles, such as Piaggio Vespa, Lambretta, etc ... has been FORBIDDEN (in absence of certificate)

Leaving it on side stand means oil smoke on start up or more people fall off on right
