Default 73 exhaust hanger

Im currently running a 2 into 1 and am thinking about changing back to a 2 into 2 stock exhaust. Im missing the exhaust hanger. I see a few different brackets on epay. Which do I need? Here is the exhaust Im running now.

Thanks, T4

hummmm
what is the picture supposed to do?
finding exhausts for that old of a machine can be challenging to say the least, i have a 74.
IF and that is IF you find an OEM clone you'll be lucky but if you are going aftermarket, you probably will have to buy the exhaust and make your own. i run a danmotor rubber on a solid, yep had to make bracket as the one for the rubber does not work.

Gasbox.

I bought on of their mufflers. Excellent. Not expensive.

I’m willing to bet you wouldn’t have any issues selling that 2-1 pipe if you choose to do so.

If I put the 2 into 2 on it I ‘d probably keep the 2 into 1. It actually sounds pretty good.

yep, i would buy it if i still had the ole ch, let my son have it, probably the sport next started riding at 12 now 72 and the idiots in the cagers are getting worst. on two wheels, you have to drive for all that share the road and there are getting toooo many of them and add a cell phone, you get the picture. your pipe would be easier to dial in.
