The 66 had the baseball bat muffler???

I just had a complete one come in the with round knob which I believe was earlier, but I do not know the time frame. I think O-lugs might be able to answer that better.

'66 had the baseball bat muffler with white felt (as opposed to red felt which was earlier). And, yes, there was a round knob that was earlier than the BB and another round knob came after the BB at the end of the sixties with the B/O badged drums. I see the BB mufflers every so often on Ebay. Be prepared to pay $50.00 or more for one.

The clips might be hit/miss as far as original ones. There are new replacements that will at least get the drum in playing shape until you can find the older style brass ones. Hope this helps. Good luck!
