It is a "Anvil" exhaust made by a member of the XROG forum. The guy who made them spent 25+ years in the aftermarket exhausts business designing pipes for some well known manufacturers. All stainless steel, the pipes are ceramic coated silver. Unfortunately he only made 10 sets. His employer decided the market was not big enough and when Harley discontinued the XR they cancelled the project. That was a disappointment for alot of the members there as you shave about 2/3 of the weight, gain a good bit of HP + torque, (the same as the torque + HP as the new torque Hammer), gain a couple of degrees of lean angle, and the sound is awesome.
We have members who have rolled their own using the stock header pipes, making a collector, then running a aftermarket muffler. Unfortunately there is no increase in ground clearance when the stock headers are used.
The TorqueHammer is a good exhaust for the XR, the only drawback is the price. Over 1k U.S.

Not mine but it looks like Supertrapp Header with a different can, maybe.

Merry Christmas, Murf

Only current Sporty I like is the 72. Anybody got any saddle time on one? At my age, the range shouldn't be an issue. I'm ready to water the lawn after about 120 miles anyway.

Winner! I got the Delkevic can used off Craigslist. It was on a Ninja 250.

My photo skills suck. My 18" rear looks like a 16.

Not where I'm headed with my next project idea. But, since becoming enamored with the sportsters, and really, really like the scrambler thing, this could definitely be coming up in the future!

Yeah, like the stock 883R 2-into-1 exhaust that was on it originally.
