What is the deal with the mufflers on these old bikes? In other words, why aren't there some aftermarket options available? And why can't a person have a muffler shop whip up something custom for them?

most places like honda, dont want to deal with parts for atvs that are 30 something years old, sooo, they stopped making them these past few years like everything else..lol. as for why they rust like they do ?, i ripped this bad one part last night, the way they designed them ?, i can see why they rust out along the bottom edge.

I get that but where I was headed with that is, is there not a modern muffler (OE Honda or aftermarket) that is close enough to where it could be modified by a custom muffler shop to fit. If it's just a matter of piping, then likely that's doable, but if there isn't a muffler that's close fit, maybe not so much.

this muffler has mounting bolt spots in certain places on it and the frame. sure...you could '' jerry rig '' a muffler on the atv, but i'm not about that, i try my best to make my builds stay stock looking as much as posb if i can ?, but some times this dont always pan out when it comes to atvs that are over 30 yrs old !..lol.

i've got a spare muffler set off my '08 shadow spirit 750 stashed in my shop attic, i could make one of them work if it comes down to the nut cutt'n..lol.

I got this set up off a parts bike and going to give it a try this time around ,  the guy took a Harley muffler and welded to a 2nd gen 300 head pipe , think it is going to  be loud , it has a baffle , I am worried about having enough back pressure , so when I dunk it under it will still idle while under water  , don't think that would be an issue for you , LOL

I checked my stash.  All rotted out along the bottom seam, and all but one were rotted where the pipe goes into the muffler.  Junk.
