S6 T6 exhaust systems

Hi,
I am looking for new or used exhaust systems in good condition to my S6 1930 model year.
Does anyone know if it is manufactured in the UK

Hi Kalle,
              I don't know of anyone who is currently making exhaust pipes for the S6/T6, but some years ago, I fabricated one in stainless steel using straight lengths of tube and 1D mandrel bends bought from Solid Fabrications in the UK. With the pieces cut to size, I then enlisted the help of a friend with a TIG welder to assemble it.(see attached photo).I believe silencers are available in mild steel from somewhere in the Czech republic.

   Regards,
                 Eddie.

Hi Eddie
Thanks for your reply.
The exhaust pipe looks very good that you made.
My exhaust system is very rusty when the motorcycle has not been started since in 1947.
An guy here in Sweden that can make it in steel and then chrome plated so.
I have also found a manufacturer in Australia to manufacture in stainless steel.
It is expensive and I do not know how it fit
The advantage of the stainless steel is that it does not need chromed and has a long shelf life as the price in the end will probably be the same.
Looking even after your tips in Czech Republic
Regards Kalle

Hi Graeme
I looked at the website and the mufflers are plain steel.  Do you know if they offer chroming or did you have it done locally. Also what was the postage cost to Tassie.

All my mufflers were made for me in stainless by Meerkat Mufflers Gympie Qld so with the Aust $ as is I would try local. Just Google it.

Hi Bert
Yes the muffler came unplated, I had it chromed in Sydney. I bought the muffler some years ago, so would have no idea what the postage cost would be now.
Cheers, Graeme

ps - I will chase up that magneto repair contact in Westbury, with xmas etc it had slipped my mind
