Looking to replace the muffler on a '48 Rap and interested in user's experience with the FEKED production examples. Also, any other worthy types made that are close copies. Want durable chromed steel not stainless.

The FEKED silencer that I had unfortunately had the welded on mounting bracket approximately 3/4" too far to the rear and would require an unsightly extension to fit it.

Mine too, and it's loud, but my Comet goes well with it.

I wanted to make my bike quieter without losing power, so I have fitted a Toga copy of a 1960 Triumph silencer. It's the straight through absorption type. It gives a very pleasant, quieter tone, and only becomes loud at full throttle.

Yes, Vins can be quiet at low throttle openings. I remember the first sprint I entered about fifty years ago (nine to ones, Mk IIs and an open pipe). It was at Blackpool and I rode from where I was working in the South of England up to my family home in Wakefield and then followed my brother, who was in his car, on the route over the Pennines. Going through the small Pennine villages at low throttle openings and people did not even look round. However, when the throttle was opened a noise something like corrugated iron being torn asunder reverberated around the surrounding hills and several of the elderly resident were rumoured to have had their first unassisted bowel movements for several years. Cries of 'god bless you lad', or something like that, followed me on my way.

At the CVMG meet at Barrie in'82, Phil Mahood's empty silencer Shadow was idling while on the rear stand and you couldn't hear it.

I'm not sure it's still available but at one time Toga could supply a proper Vincent silencer but like all absorption silencers it's effectiveness deceases it time.
