Wow, those are ratty!
That's a great idea. You just need something that will hold up better, like rabbit fencing or hardware cloth.when i had no mufflers on my old 500/4 to dampen the noise i used chicken wire. Cut lengths about 10" wide and rolled them into a sausage like structure that was 10" long and tight enough that they wee a firm fit up the header. drilled a hole on the end of the pipe and used a nail through the pipe to stop the netting from blowing out.
Just riding around town the bike noise was acceptable, until i opened the throttle then it sounded great.
Didn't last a long time as the head would destroy the netting

There isn't much demand for the fourth generation El Caminos, 1973-1977. Because they are big boats. Most got crushed. They are now beginning to look pretty cool, if you don't mind driving around in a big boat.That sucks! You dont see those around much anymore. Especially the 74.
This is probably the most fun project that I've worked on.
