I tried to order two but no such luck.

I've got a brand new pair of HD Sportster mufflers set to go on at some point.

You could buy a whole Harley for that money!

..."Look at this on eBay"....... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/252371275449........has been cancelled.

New bidding on Ebay for the same muffler, now with still 7 days to go and 16 bids; highest at $ 1.100,-....... http://www.ebay.com/itm/Honda-GL1000-Go ... 2394155253

Coincidentally, today in the Netherlands I purchased a new / never used OEM Honda GL1000 muffler offered at $1.600,- for $ 1.300,-...........for spare purposes, since my 1975 K1 with 11.000 mls on the odo has a muffler with 95% condition........

My K1 and my 1990 Yahama SRX600 (with 900 mls on the odo), the latter donated to my son last year......


The latest offering af a NOS OEM Honda GL1000 muffler in the Netherlands was approx. 1,5 years ago.........offered at $ 2.550,- (incl. both headers) ........the Motorcycleshop did refuse me 2 times to negotiate.......actually it was sold within 6 weeks!......afterwards I noticed that a couple of GW-guys I know have been in contact with him too...

There is no way on Earth that I would part with that kind of money for the exhaust system. Especially as they are now being remanufactured by another company to the exact original spec for £800. The materials are superior and the only downside is that they are not stamped with the Honda number.

Unless you are going for a Concourse win, this should suffice. http://www.davidsilverspares.com/GL1000 ... art_32002/

The OEM one is a MMTN option.

I don't actually need one but this is the re-manufactured one that I would use if I did: https://www.davidsilverspares.co.uk/GL1 ... rt_273632/
