Of all the ways to customize your motorcycle, aside from paint, the wide world of exhaust systems provides the largest variety. Just a few of the options to choose from include true duals, 2-into-1s, mufflers, drag pipes, and fishtails. Then you have the myriad of finishes; chrome, ceramic black, heat wrapped, and heat shields/no heat shields. When searching out new pipes, if you want a particular sound, style, performance, or some other criteria, finding the right exhaust for your ride can be a daunting task. When it came to one of our project bikes (a ’96 Springer) however, we were able to easily narrow down the pipe pool based on necessity. After lowering the front and rear of the Softail, the lean angle of the bike was significantly reduced. So we wanted a set of pipes that had a custom look but wouldn’t interfere with the lean angle on the right side. We found exactly what we needed with a set of Fuelies from Exotic Choppers.

Paul Kokesh started Exotic Choppers (EC) about 10 years ago as an all-around shop that could handle everything from paint, fabrication, custom bike building, and service as well as offering a line of custom parts such as intakes, lighting, handlebars, and exhaust systems. Within the exhaust section of the EC website you’ll find a plethora of pipes that range in style from mild to wild. Aside from the wide variety of styles, Paul also offers his pipes for a large cross section of bikes and fitments from baggers, Sportsters, Dynas, and V-Rods to right-side drive bikes, hard tails, as well as pipes for older models like Shovelheads. To go along with the pipes, Paul also offers the option of baffles or no baffles, torque cones, custom tips, o2 sensor bungs for EFI, and various finishes such as chrome, black ceramic, and polished silver ceramic. You can also order chrome pipes with a metallic ceramic lining which will help prevent discoloration on the exterior. **HB**
