LAF Pipes: Shovel vs. Evo Price Difference???

so...

I had a set of LAF pipes that I was going to instal on my early 90s EVO but that entire build went to shit..(long story that I won't get into right now) however, I still had the pipes in the garage.

before I sold them, I really liked the way they looked on the shovel (I just held them in place)...and was thinking of purchasing a set for my 1977 shovel. but Whoa! the price difference!!!

I think I paid around $85-$95 EVO set back in 2002. that price really hasn't changed all that much since then but, man...$199 for the shovel version? I mean...why???

Twisted choppers makes a slightly cooler looking version of it but those are nearly $400 in raw steel.

anyone know why the shovels exhaust is so much more??? I hope its not a "because they can" reason.

anyway, sorry for the rant but that just threw me off.

Are these the pipes?
Have you even tried them on? I got them when I rebuilt this bike to right side drive. They were fitting and reasonably priced , but I had to change them to set of custom welded ones . I could not tune up the bike . My idle speed pull vary, very sensitive to temp variations, they offer no back pressure + they are significantly different in length.

Here is what I have now.

Yes sir! Those are it.
The ones I had were for EVO motors. Not for shovels. The flange is different. I would need to get the ones for late model Shovelheads 71-84 that have the single bolt flange.

But yes, I did hear they are a bitch to tune up since the pipes are radically different lengths. So I probably wonít get them. But man, why the Huge price Difference??? I can see maybe $20 or so but shit! Itís $100 difference for the same pipes.
