thats it, thanks . . . I've made one with tin snips, and bolted it in, having chopped the middle baffle out we're a bit loud, but it sounds good, to me if not the neigbourhood!

How did you cut the baffel out? In other words at which point did you cut the pipe open? You couldn't post a pic of the welded up hole?

the inside of the exhaust was peppered with holes ( what you get for £25 these days) so I took a bit of a guess and attacked it with a grinder! its all on th rear/inside so barely noticable.

I have another one which has been butchered, I'll cut that as well and take some pics . . . I'm thinking of trying to add a muffler on the end to shut it up a bit!

By god I've had one of those in a box of bits since 1980 when I was ferkin around with the J125 conversion (2 sacks of J125 engines for 3 squid ) can I have more please?).
trouble is I'm now in Colombia,South America with a Vega 140 cc(me thinks compression is wicked) and looking into the inlet port it's no J piston.

Also to mention I bought in 1979/80 a brand new Vega one piece exhaust from Reghams of York (Can't believe I poached that from Tom Petch's backyard) for ............£7 still with the Innocenti sticker.
Here's the sickening thing ,I later had to cut it a little for the J125 conversion.

i also had a 1 piece vega exhaust, a pain to fit, i also cut mine for a 125 conversion.
i'm not 100% sure if they were ever intended for a vega though, as i have seen two genuine lui50 s models, (both from sweeden) and they both had a 1 piece vega type exhaust.
