    I could make some baffles to fit it the straght 👍

    A cursory google search surprisingly reveals quite a few options, actually (I won't expect those to be of the same efficiency as a full-size muffler, but at least one isn't a complete a$s).

    Maybe a Dunstall or Emgo Dunstall replica muffler will clear the footrests.
    I like the classic look of them.

    ^^that could run parallel to the ground…it’s the clearance I would evaluate next.

    Are you going to be leaning in those curves with this bike?

    I did have a set of these originally on the bike before rearsets, these pipes look great but I believe only if they angle up at the back. I'm not sure they would look any good running parallel with the ground.
