So is there a way to get those Storz to fit on a pre-04 or actually.... does anyone make a set of high pipes (I'm thinking XR750, XR1000 replicas) hm... I'm at work and the owners on Vacation... now I know what I'm doing today....

Not sure if a company makes them, but it wouldn't be hard to find a guy to weld up a set. If the guy is good, just show him a picture and he could make it. I think Biltwell has a do-it-yourself exhaust kit that would get you the basic tubing. Pick out a set of mufflers to weld on, spray the whole thing flat black, and you are good to go.

Just don't buy an '05 Sporty. For some reason HD made just about everything on the bike a little bit different that the years before and after. It's like a Twilight Zone model...every aftermarket part out there is available for anything but the '05.

I like these...
D&D Exhaust - D&D 2-Into-1 ‘Fat Cat’ Pipes

But the point of the post is this:
SuperTrapp 4" Megaphone External Disc Series 2:2 Exhaust Systems-Satin Finished Stainless Steel

The problem with the Storz rear sets is that you have to get the pipes out of the way and I couldn't find many that don't cover the gear cover. Seems that all of Harleys pipes are supposed to make you look unique by being the same...though that makes no sense at all.

Gonna do a little whale watching this afternoon.

It's a lovely 77 degree Santa Ana day. We've got grays, minkes and finbacks flopping around just a couple miles off the coast.
