I found the following picture on the Motorcyclist magazine.
http://www.motorcyclistonline.com/reviews/norton-commando-961-cafe-racer-first-ride?image=1

The exhaust system including the middle part (probably de-cat because I can't see lambda sensors) does not look like the stock one.
Has anyone seen this system before or even has a clue where these exhausts are from and if they are available somewhere?
Thank you for any helpful information.

I added the link in my previous post.
Just thinking about it, can in fact not be aftermarket if the picture was taken 2010.
May be Simon from Norton UK can tell us something about the exhaust system shown. Probably an early version?

I like the gold sprocket which I've seen on the older ads. Thought thats what I'd get, but its black. No big deal.

This was a photo of the early CR design with:
Black Rims
Black airbox
Black triple trees

I think the exhaust has cats but the pipes pictured had the cats at the rear of the crossover pipe, next to silencer connection.
In this design the sensor is probably below the engine, out of sight in this shot.

Hi Guys,

That appears to be an early SVA model bike, (Single Vehicle Application) There were no lambda sensors required for the SVA tests, the Cats are there, just slightly smaller and positioned closer to the silencer. The old logo on the tank is a good indication of the age of the bike.

Is it possible to get these silencers? I appreciate their look much.

I believe they were an early prototype so I'm afraid not. We do have the short after market silencers available that offer a similar style as seen in other posts on this forum.

Thank you for the quick reply. I already have secondhand short pipes, but only for non-road use.

Allow me one more question about the silencers. You wrote that all of your exhaust systems are stainless steel today. I still had the chrome coated ones (delivery in May 2012). Did geometry of the silencers (stock and aftermarket long open ones) change between chrome coated and stainless steel types?
