exhaust pipe and cut out with a pedal

I want to figure out how a muffler goes on this pipe or whatever,I bought this pipe years ago because it has a cut out on it. The remains of the body work on the 26 I am making a speedster from had the pedal on it so I I need to know it would hook up and what is done to put the muffler on this pipe....

Re: Please God, just one more mile........

There was a old fellow rode around here years ago picking up junk to sell. He told me of having tires similar to this and he would deflate them,and put a tire over the 1 mounted to the wheel and pump the tire back up and continue to ride.
Bumpy,but riding not walking.

Re: Lack of power questions

I must admit,I do not understand the "whack with a hammer" thing on the valves,that would seem to cause more damage than anything else. Lapping them in is simple and makes sure there is a good seal. The other detail I read that bugs me is the "pink spark". A good hot spark should be blueish to almos...

Re: Low speed notch

My chassis for my 26 speedster has NO body at all and it was Still a pain to fit the hog head over the trans.Heavy and awkward for me even standing in the chassis.And yes the fit past the manifold is TIGHT.
If you can get some help,it wouldn't be a bad idea.
