    Slowly starting work

    I finally started working on my 1980 GS1100. First I’m just trying to make sure I get it running properly and efficiently before I start chopping and customizing. First big issue is I bought this bike with a Vance and Hines exhaust on it already, the issue is it’s in the way of the foot brake lever, and right side peg, previous owner just adjusted the brake lever and flipped the peg. Main issue with that is the awkward stance you now have to ride in. Any tips or hints or general information would be helpful. I tried good old google to attempt to find a new exhaust system, but only turned up what I already have on the bike. Again any and all info will be greatly appreciated.

    $400. it might need some massaging, and maybe some custom baffles, but it's badass nonetheless

    I can vouch for Hindle's stuff.
    Here is the website for the guys (Ripple Rocke Racers) listed on Hindle's site. Since they are from Canada, the price is pretty great for US buyers.
    This is probably the one of best systems you can buy for our old bikes.

    that look spretty sweet, but it looks like you lose a lot of ground clearance though, have you had the chance to ride the bike with that on there?
