Hi John, Yes a lot of chrome exhausts are seen on vintage Scotts where they should be nickel. For many years the only replacement exhausts were coming from Armours in Bournemouth, and they were all chrome, and being siamesed R/H pipes they really should not be on anything before 1935. TT Reps and Sprint Specials were mostly 2″ L/H siamesed pipes. Another issue is that chrome exhaust pipes are easier to care for than nickel ones, and that has influenced people’s choices.
