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.

..."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/

I had a look at a set that David Silver had on his stand at Stafford and I thought they were beautifully made. I notice that they are not shown on David Silver's website anymore though.

I thought he might be getting more, Peter. Judging by the interest he had at Stafford, he must have shifted the stock pretty fast.

Can't understand why that exhaust on ebay didn't sell :o
There is also a business in Australia that hand builds replica stainless steel systems for 1100s. Overlander motorcycle exhausts. He used to make our 6 into 6 systems for cbx club. Quality product. Will cost me near on $1500 all up for full system. Think it's around 750 if you want just the silencers...
