Looking for a cheap pair fir my K Model Forks.
They are the 71-72 style. I think they still fit early lowers, just not the other way around.

He does headwork and likely will dual plug your heads. Hit him up!

WTB 2-1 exhaust for my 72 xlch. I was going to buy the mac exhaust from dennis kirk but i waited too long.

There are nice 2-1 mufflers on ebay but no headers. So i’d be interested in the headers too if you have those and not the muffler.

Sportyparts.com shows a Ironhead 2 into 1 header currently sold out. They have a link for email notice when they come available? If enough interest perhaps they'll produce more??
