I think there were a couple years of the XR600 (88 & 89, maybe?) that had stainless steel head pipes as a factory item. They are the 2 pipe units that do not merge into one near the cylinder like the other year 600s.

Age + dirt + stainless = patina.  They should polish up nicely, tho you may lose a bit of the "gold" tint for a while...
