After a long break working on other projects, I have been spurred on with this project when I found a NOS muffler to match th eearly left one I had. This new one was NOS but quite rusty and looks very, very early because it is much lighter and has a very rudimentry middle bracket mount,



I'm hoping it can be rechromed as it is very thin compared to the later type.



The 'good' muffler I have, managed to pick up a few storage dents, so I got that stripped ready for a little filling.I used a suitable grade of silver solder to fill the dings after consultation with the chrome platers



It's going to take quite a while before they are replated but at least I can sit back and let someone else do the work.



Now I have to get motivated to finish off the seat and one or two other details.

Graham,

Good to see you back working on the project. The NOS exhaust is a great find.

Thanks for the kind words. I have not been entirely away from 305 stuff. I have been helping with the restoration of this 1963 CYP77 police bike.



Lots of unusual details on this bike. 360 degree engine, 17 inch wheels, oddball indicators and all of the police paraphernalia....



The project was scattered all over several barns so it was quite a challenge finding the correct parts.

If it weighs less that stock it is one of the early re pops. ..............lm
