So I was on E Bay looking for some parts and I saw a vintage Hindle 4 into1 exhast system on the site, I let it sit for a while and saw the 80+ people watching it, after looking at the pictures of the corrosion on everything I decided to pass on it, Fast forward, I couldn’t help my self so I hit buy it now, after receiving it I was pleasantly surprised as the pipes were nickel plated and the muffler was just dusty, so I had the header ceramic coated in black and polished the muffler and am very pleased with the outcome, it’s my vintage bike so I wanted the vintage look, not a carbon fiber modern looking exhast,I think it looks great! I also bought on E Bay a right rear foot peg bracket and cut off the peg and contoured it so it’s the muffler hanger. Sorry to those who were watching the auction, You snooze you loose! I may sell my stock collector and the F-1 mufflers at some time not sure yet?

That looks great!  I did the same thing with a foot peg bracket on mine. 

I couldn't find a good picture, but I also modified a left passenger peg bracket as a shock remote reservoir mount.

Yea I was looking after I mounted the muffler and it just didnt look right ,,,so in the band saw it went! Seemed like the right thing to do! The hindle is fairly quiet was surprised when I started it for the first time!

I thought it was pretty reasonable too.  I think the larger volume muffler helps.  Still has a very nice scream in the upper revs tho!

That is a great looking bike. Very nice work.

 

One of my R's has Kerkers on it, I' really don't like them. Harley guys cover their ears when I go by. The other R has F-1's, way down on the decibel scale, but I was over them also when I rode to California and back a few years ago.

 

Have never heard a Hindle on a V4. If you get a chance, it would be interesting to hear what it sounds like on your bike.

 

Edit. Welcome to the Board, should have said that first :)
