    The owner of this 9 should be enlightened that the 'Eliminator' decals on the side covers have two different sizes... :laughing7:

    That reproduction looks great, I am already running supertrapps and can't justify springing for new cans as of now. I hope the effort is justified and you move some pairs of these beauties. Nothing looks better under the stock footpeg bracket than a stock shaped muffler! Your price doesn’t seem out of line, I think the supertrapps I bought in the early 90's were ~$600. Thanks for making this happen and best of luck with sales.

    Thank you for your answer 87kawzl ;)

    Talk to your friends, I will put a final price soon.
    This will be the last chance to find new mufflers for this machine.
    The mufflers will be engraved and the back black painted as originally, the welds polished.
    More order, smaller price! :)

    You should start a separate thread like 'VA-mufflers order' and everyone joining in drags'n'drops the previous order(s), adds his own and so on...; this way you have an overview everytime - the order should be binding and possibly with a deadline (just my 2ct).

    VA is the term I know for stainless steel and comes from the German company KRUPP-Stahl which took the first letter of the two words 'Versuchsschmelze Austenit' (trial melt austenit), you know it as INOX (inoxydable) and the formula starts with 'X' like X5CrNi18-10 aka 1.4301; other types of this steel are V2A or V4A etc.

    OK Harri,
    Stainless steel should be enough! ;)

    Why not use the Dutch acronym RVS standing for "RoestVrij Staal" (RustFree Steel)? Just my annoying 2ct....

    :hello: Nice. :notworthy:. Did you black out the end caps or are they going to come blackened.
