Your picture didn't come through. So here you go.



I have no idea other than eBay.

Those look custom made to me. Pipe Dreamz has a set of 2-1 pipes that they make specifically for ironheads for $395. Here's a link to it: http://www.pipedreamz.biz/early.html

Default You can always take a set of drag pipes, buy some "S" and...

...straight sections at your local auto parts in the exhaust section, and fab up your own.
$395 for a collection of tubing is beyond ri-f@#king-diculous!!!

Default Rick, I took a second look at the link and saw that those clowns...

...are selling plain old drags for close to $200!!!
It's a travesty.

For a fraction of that you can fab up a kick-ass 2:1 system in stainless, with cool little hidden mounts using weld-in bungs.

Whatever happened to being self-reliant, resourceful, and rolling your own?

Here's another Ironhead with that same style system, maybe even the same pipes, since the other bike is in the background. It's pretty cool, like an old Vincent exhaust. I wonder if joining the two pipes together like that (with no collector) hurts the performance any? You have both cylinders dumping into a single run of 1-3/4" pipe and small muffler/megaphone.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it (especially if you don't know what you're doing). Most Sportster problems are owner-induced.

Nothing wrong with that pipe.

I prefer longer primary pies though.

Default Me too, those cut down headers before the joint are...

...WAY too short.
They kind of detract from the 2-into-1 system's scavenging capabilities.
