Well, to answer my own question, Paughco makes a set.

I was hoping to find something a little different, but it's an option.

I personally really like the factory 2 into 1 that came on the '78 Sportster. I put one on my '79 XLCH that I built up from a rolling basket case and shipped to Australia in 1997.

I like that, Crusty. I went with the Paughco 719C2 with a goose-cut tip that can slant out or down depending on the look that I settle on. I've received most of my parts and am working on mockup before I finish the complete teardown and bodywork.
