    looking out for V&H fishtail (or similar) tips

    In a moment of enforced idleness this last weekend, I deduced fishtail exhaust tips might look nice on my softail's V&H plain duals. I investigated online and - HOW ***KIN' MUCH?*? Also, it seems they're generally 'currently unavailable'. Before investigating further, I wondered if people here might have any useful pointers or ....um.... 'tips', ha, ha, ha https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/End-caps-...QAAOSwePhd4noq https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/392928971300?var=0 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Vance-Hines.../dp/B007KPS38O etc, etc.

    Re: looking out for V&H fishtail (or similar) tips

    I had fish tail tips on my V & H exhaust fitted to my first Road King. I thought they looked great. However, they do stick out beyond the rear of the bike. Caught my ankle on them a few times when cleaning the bike (ouch) and still have the hole in my fence on my driveway from a three point turn! Beware, they are sharp!

    yeah, Cap. I suppose I'm falling in alongside the 'ride with no front mudguard' and (dareIsayit) hardtail; bad idea but cool as...!

    I have them on my Heritage but I seem to remember that the dealer got H-D ones as they were smaller than the V&H ones - and cheaper if I remeber correctly

    There's some cheapy universal fishtails on FB Market place at the minute. Ad title is 'Road King' for some reason. Might be worth the thirty quid he's asking just to see if you like the look. You can always flog em on if you don't.

    Ah! I found it, it looks interesting but I'd only be tempted into a terrible bodge job, you know, Vinny

    Pphhtt! I found a nice pair of V&H tips on eBay but wasn't paying proper attention at the end and was outbid (interesting doc on Johnny Cash, tho.....). Dammit!! So, still looking and if any body has/knows of any for sale....
