1969 Z50 Muffler Baffles

Does anybody have a picture ( I know it would be hard to get a photo of) of the internal baffles of a stock Honda muffler? My bike seems loud, so I am assuming somebody removed/destroyed them in the past. Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you

I don't think there are any but not 100% sure. I always thought that tailpipe just was inside. Maybe someone here has cut one open. I do know they are loud mine has never been modified. It seems louder than my CT70 maybe because the muffler is so huge on them.

There is some sound dampening in there. I think I have a muffler handy at home. I'll get some pics for you later today.

You can buy new ones but they do not have the verbiage imprinted on them so you can see that they are not original if that matters to you. If you go this route don't throw out the old one, you might find the new one sounds the same

I know there is a decent reproduction out there, but I think it doesn't have a baffle in it...maybe just lined with insulation and metal screening. Don't remember for sure now. I have one, but I think it's in my storage unit.
What are you building Gary Hudak? Need a quiet muffler, or a quiet AND beautiful muffler? Used parts are out there, in varying...used part kinda conditions. You could find NOS...but they're very expensive.

All my baffles have rotted out. Honestly i didnt know it had them at one time. More concerned about verbiage and chrome.

I am finished building a 69 for my boys when they are older ( And for me until they are)! Re-did a tricycle to give them something to ride till they are older. My muffle exterior is in good condition, just too dang loud. I might try to fish some glass inside to take the "edge" off of the tone.

Very hard to find the original black and green one,the red and green just look wrong. I found a couple a number of years ago,the one in my bike I never filled and pulled the fuse to keep it pristine.
