Default 2003 Exhaust system?

The "exhaust" system on my bike is just the wrapped header pipes. Although it is a look.. and one that has kind of grown on me since purchasing it... I am still interested in getting a new exhaust put on it. Problem I am running into is finding a system that I like that fits the 03. Are my options really that limited or am I looking in the wrong places?

I have the Ness Slash pipes on my 03 vegas but they don't offer it anymore. I was looking at hacker pipes and RPW exhaust to replace the Ness pipes that are on it.

I have found a couple systems from the sellers that bowslinger mentioned above but have not found anything I am truly interested in though.

Although this past week when my wife and I were out looking for a new bike for her we were at a Honda dealership that recently bought out a Polaris dealership and it's entire inventory... the guy I talked to is supposed to check to see what all he has in inventory and will be sending me a list of what he has... hoping to get lucky there lol

The guy at the shop called and I ran down there today and he had a set of chrome Ness Slash pipes that would fit my Vegas. They were covered in construction dust since the box was partially opened but all of the hardware was there and I could not pass up the price... $200

Funny thing is that I had to run by the place I dropped it off at for the fork seals. Told the wife that depending on the final cost of that I would or would not get the exhaust. As it turns out the front bearings in the bike had to be replaced as well so I ended up spending over $300 for all of the work. While I was there I was talking to one of the guys there and told him I were I was going but then said on top of it that the exhaust better be what I was looking for AND the price better knock my socks off... When we got to the other shop and he brought them out so I could see what they were and then told me that he would let them go for $200 my wife looks at me and says "You bastard!" lol
