no its not a bad thing '75 - '77 wings had a black exhaust system with chrome covers on the mufflers. i never liked that look. think about it all honda road bikes at that time had chrome exhaust system except the top of the line goldwing
Had the Markland floorboards and heel and toe shifter on my 78 wing when I bought it.They were not a very good fit. You have to really use your toe and an extreme angle to use the rear brake. I thought it too unsafe so I removed them. The heel toe shifter wasn't too impressive either. Plus it made using the side stand a real pita.
I love it the way Honda designed it.
