If you find out that's the heads you have, I can post a link that will give you more info on them. (They should dyno into the high 80's HP with a good exhaust like you have. Mine is running high 90's with a Woods cam).
Hi. Thank you for good information
Went out and took a picture of it. Is this what you think it is?

That's them. I purchased a 2002 883/1200 conversion done with this kit, and did lot of digging to find out what was included. It was more popular years ago when the option to modify your stock heads was not so readily available as today. If you check a pushrod and find adjustables, that should be the final clue! The heads weren't always sold as part of the kit, but the kit did include the heads and all the components I mentioned above. If you check your ignition, you will probably fine an upgraded, selectable curve module that enhances this package. Mine had a Dyna 2000i, you could have that or a Screamin Eagle version. These heads are interesting, with 2.000 intakes and a huge combustion chamber which handle a high TDC lift cam. You will find manufacturing numbers on the sides of the heads. A call to S&S and they can tell you the year of manufacture. Earlier versions were set up for cams up to, it think, .560 lift. Later versions (my 2002 set) will handle cams up to .630 lift. What came with the kits were usually Andrews N6 cams with a relatively low .500 lift. Follow the link below for more info. They used the same heads on 3.50" bore Sportsters as the 80" Evo motor. Even back in those days, it was a $2500 package so you got a nice surprise!

I love the paint scheme on your bike! Always been a fan of racing stripes, even had them done on my surfboards!

Looked through the thread, nice buy on the bike. Like the changes you've done. Does it run good?

Thank you.
I`ve not been able to ride it alot. But it got a bad vibration in the handlebars. It is so bad that my hands get numb after a ten minutes ride. There is no riser bushings on this bike, an it`s not possible to fit in some. So I have to find another solution to the problem.
