They still make them in

They still make them in Britain. Have you tried contacting them to see if any used ones available anywhere? Or just go ahead and buy one that's what credit cards for. If you use Pay Pal you can pay over time/ I do it all the time for big ticket items....if they use Pay Pal.

These mufflers are made by DRP as stamped on the muffler. There is a DRP that makes a lot of motorcycle mufflers from Italy.
Maybe do some research on that name. The vat at 23% isn't that the tax? WOW. These mufflers aren't chrome but where they on the bike new?

Some of those cylinder studs

Mac

Mac Performance.com $300 for some mufflers.
I bought there replacement mufflers for my 69S 3yrs ago. Its not stock but I don't like the "cigar" looking ones like everyone but my brother has on their bike.
I like it, not loud & cost was right & looks good.
So there ya go.
