cutting the exhaust on a small parallel twin

one of my pipes has a severe dent in it and has nearly pinched off the left exhaust pipe. i cant just take the mufflers off of the pipe with a clamp or bolt or whatever. they are welded on. i am thinking of cutting the mufflers off, so that i can potentially get the dent out that way. it's a few inches from the muffler, and just after the downward bend of the pipe.
is this something an exhaust shop could get fixed at a reasonable cost? like what, $50? $75? $100? more?

Easy fix. You can take it to a mom and pop shop and they can fix it for cheap. Most you would pay is like $30, I would think.

Yeah, this one runs. kicks very easily, and should start with the button once i get another battery. From what i can tell, the bike is in great condition aside from the tires.

Btw, can anyone reccommend a good madre y padre shop in conroe that would be able to handle this? for exhaust shops, the only one i have ever been to was a big name shop (i cant recall- i want to say midas, but i dont think thats right) and it wound up being a lot more than they had first told me. like $300 to replace a rusted mid pipe on my old volvo 240 wagon.

ive taken the pipe to the meinike on frazier, and was referred to the fastlane (fastline?) motorcycle shop on 105. both places couldnt help. they were both saying that the diameter is too small for them to work with.

im still kicking my own over not snatching up the pair of cm200 pipes for 70 something bucks on ebay when i had the chance.

i'll try that shop in cut and shoot if i have the opportunity to any time soon.

If they can't help, try cut n shoot choppers. Maybe their more custom centric business might have better luck?
