I wanted to put a set of V&H staggereds on my springer softail. The new ones with the "power chamber".
Everyone I contacted advised the pipes were on backorder and I could expect a 4 to 6 week delay. One of the local after market shops did some checking for me, and managed to get the pipes I wanted from Drag Specialties. Here's the catch: The pipes were made by V&H. They came in a V&H box, with V&H instructions, except they did not have the "billet tips". They came with the full wrap heat shields, power chamber, design cut, and were badged as "Python" from Drag Specialties. They also cost me about 185.00 less than what I was quoted for the V&H badging and billet tips.
