How to recognize exhaust?

Hello everybody,

I am a new Vulcan owner and new to this blog. I already found some great stuff here, so I am hoping I can get some help. I recently acquired a '85 Vulcan 700 that I want to restore. The bike came with an aftermarket exhaust which I will replace with an original one, and try selling this. However, I cannot figure out which exhaust it is since I don't know much about them. There is nothing on the pipes, except a small code that says E018. The clamps say Cobra. It does look like some slash cut Cobra pipes I found online. Does anybody know which exhaust this is?

Thanks!

They also kinda look like the Jardine's that I had on one of mine.

Yup, the clamp says Cobra, the shape says Cobra, I'm going with Cobra.

Never saw Cobra's like that...dual right side.
I may be wrong.
Jardines, I passed up a purchase of a pair just like those.
Again, maybe I am wrong with this. ..... I am not positive

You maybe right there William, the muffler part looks like Cobra, but I'm not sure they made a "same side" exhaust. I was told my 750 has a Cobra exhaust, but there's one on each side.

Also, check out the crash bar in the first video. Never saw one like that, at first I thought it had two bars on it.

So, Cobra did make a one side exhaust. But yeah, now that's a crash bar....
Never seen another like it for a Vulcan.

Thanks for the input, everyone. I checked some more videos, those do look like Cobras. I took them off the bike, but still couldn't find any markings on them, except on the clamps. I'll do some more research on Jardine's, but at this point I'm leaning toward Cobras.

Thanks!
