I've been looking everywhere for an extended kickstand for an IH. V-Twin makes one, but all the online vendors are out of stock and can't tell me when they will be available again. I don't want to use extension blocks. HELP! My bike leans way too much, since it has extended forks and a stock length kickstand.

My jiffy stand is just a length of what looks to be 1/2" rod shoved into the pivoting thing. Not sure how to describe it. It was held in with a spot of weld, broken of course (like everything else on the bike ) If yours is like this, just grind the weld spot or even cut the rod off and drill it out, then get a length of 1/2" rod and bend to suit. Mine isn't chromed or anything, just a bit of plain steel, but if I wanted to fancy it up, I'd probably nickel plate it with a homemade setup. Nickel plating is easy. Chrome kickstands are way to spendy for my taste for what you get.

Default Early Sportster Passenger Foot Pegs with Mounting Bar

Anybody need the early passenger foot pegs with their mounting bar? It is the mount that bolts to rear engine mounting bolts.

Free to whoever may need it but you gotta pay the postage, which I have not yet determined.

PM me with contact info and I will send pics by text or to your e-mail.

Default 71 Ironhead for Sale $3900 OBO

For sale is my vintage 71 Ironhead, matching engine and frame and hasn’t been hard tailed.
It’s about 90% stock.
New battery, chain, oil filter, air filter, and wiring has been completely redone.
Newer seat
Drag bars
Integrated taillight with turn signals
Keihin carb
Was running this spring but since COVID it’s been sitting mostly. I hate to sell it but I’m moving and itll be easier.
It starts after a few kicks but it doesn’t stay running for long, should be an easy fix.
I’ve also got the service manual and a parts catalog
Clean title
If youre interested PM me
$3900 OBO
