Be fairly easy to fab, except on an IH you don't have that kind of room between the carb and cam cover.

Try twisted pipes. They have some options for Iron Heads. I don't remember if they had something like this, but they have some interesting stuff.

You might try pipedreamz (http://www.pipedreamz.biz/). They make pipes only for sportsters and make a set very similar to that (see snowman's bobber build). I know they make pipes for ironheads but, don't know if they make that set for them. Good Luck.

Can't find the pipes, but do have a picture of an Ironhead with high shotguns:

Can't recall if your bike is a rigid, but if you want the high pipes, it's probably your only option.

Default ironhead pipes

Spitfire motorcycles makes a set called hi&tite, they look great. I'm going to order a set for my 74. Just ordered a girder for my bobber from them, great guys.
