Black fishtails - pics please

I currently have knockoff CFR 4” megaphones on my 18 RGS. Have recently been thinking about switching to black fishtails. Anyone have any pics? Anyone have them and care to comment on the sound or lack there of? Still running the cat in the headpipe and a high flow air cleaner.

Sorry, can't help you out with the info you seek. However, I would like to see what you get as responses. I have always been a fan of Fishtails, but don't know much of anything about them sound or performance wise.

I haven’t had much luck finding any decent pics. May just buy some. Lol. Then I’ll have pics and can post them for others.

It'll be interesting to see if anyone runs them now. Honestly, I don't think I've ever seen fishtails that weren't chromed, except for some antique bike applications. Good luck, and let us know how you make out.

I had fishtails on my 82 FLT years ago - loved the look - but my shins hurt just thinking about them..

Scarlet Red 2010 Road Glide Custom named Trixie - She's a flashy little minx..
Basic black 1981 Tour Glide Classic named Alice - She's a sleeper project.
