Gasbox 1957 Sportster Header Pipe

Postby GaryM2 » Wed Apr 07, 2021 2:46 pm

Gasbox has replenished their stock of 1957 Sportster 2 into 1 Header Pipes.

Jesse at Gasbox did a great job reproducing these header pipes to match the originals. He lists these as fitting other model years too.

Here is a link to their site.

Has anyone purchased this pipe? Pros and cons. Also looking for a muffler. Any help appreciated. Thank you in advance, Tom.

Bot the pipe but I have one of the high pipe mufflers. Possibly better than original HD. One of the best mufflers I have ever seen.

Yes. About four weeks ago I got one of the second run pipes.

I can't tell the difference from my original.

Really, really happy.

But, expect the tight fit of an original. Hook the front and spread the rear pipe to fit and pop on.

Thanks!

Gasbox was out a few weeks ago and now I can finish up that install :-)

I asked The Gasbox about 2 into 1 for K models, he says they have to make some tooling but hope to be in production by Winter.
