 Excellent job with the resto Pete, it's inspiring.  Just stumbled upon your thread here, nice job documenting.
How were you able to pull the silencer from the pipe?  Isn't it welded inside?

Hi whs
Thanks, it's a great little bike and I ride it lots.
The screw holds the silencer and pipe outlet in.
If you take out the screw you need to rotate the pipe outlet as it has a couple of small lugs in the stem locating it in the baffle.
If the baffle is stuck like mine was, you can prise it through the screw hole then I used the grips on the few milimetres sticking out the end of the exhaust.
If it's really bunged up the guys on the forum recommend putting the exhaust on a fire or in the BBQ, without the chrome on of course.

And so Mothersbaugh becomes a further danger in a tight game of Scrabble, having today been taught the word 'prise.'

Never heard it before. Thanks, man!

Excellent Pete, bike looks great. That bike would fit nice on the front of my camper.

Thanks Mark.
Converting my 2012 VW Transporter into a camper is on my project list.
I need to get a replacement work van first though and I'm not sure it'll take a CT1 on the front or back of it when it's done

Sure thing, I'd bet. Over here we have mounting rails that will go into a 1.75 or a 2.0 inch rear hitch receiver and hold anywhere from 200-500 pounds (I leave the metric/English conversions to you!), and I know that the CT-1 sits right at about 200 pounds.
Or are you talking VW's age and rust?

Oh yeah, here's what you're talking about (not my van or bike).
 
Van is in great condition being a 2012 year and I've only done 41,000 miles.
Need to convert it first though
