Just picked up an '80 Deluxe donor bike with rotted h-box and exhaust. Fortunately I have a decent h-box from a GL500 and some HD cans.

Since I'm not using the original CX mufflers and don't have to match angles, will the GL500 h-box fit on the CX500?

Pic to show the damage, I think this ones a goner

They are different. Different hanger width and different heat shields.

Many of us have replaced the H box with Murray's Quick Build mid pipes. They work with any of these models.
Thanks. I'm not a welder, so would prefer a bolt on solution that can use the HD cans I already own. Murray's website doesn't have a page for the exhaust, so i'll dig a little on the forum.

Note that Murray's pipes are intended to be welded to the headers but they can be clamped with a little ingenuity. Here's how I did it (scroll down past my attempt to shorten a clamp)
