If you want the real thing, look here (but get your wallet ready...)

The Airtech repro stuff is made to fit '86 and up models, so I don't know how well it would work on your bike. It's not a perfect reproduction, either - just looks similar.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it (especially if you don't know what you're doing). Most Sportster problems are owner-induced.
