    I am looking for a 2-into-1 pipe that is "classic" looking. I was looking at the roadhouse classic with the serrated heat shield and also the thunderheader 2-into-1. I am seeing a lot of blueing on the thunderheader pipe and have heard the same about the roadhouse. does anyone have a recommendation?

    I am aware that the heat shields cover most blueing from being seen. But if I understand it correctly, the thunderheader does not have a heatshield, correct? I will look into the Bassanis and Kerker. Thanks.

    So it does have a heat shield on the headers? I thought it did not.

    can anyone identify the 2 into 1 on this link? I found them for sale, and the person does not know what make they are. I like the look but would like to know what they are. at the end of the pipe there it flares out.

    I put Rienhart 2 into 1 with a baffel on my 08 fat boy. Like the looks, sound and performance. Have shields, but they are bluing too. No matter. I don't mind the bluing look, adds to the character of a road bike!

    BUT, if you have saddle bags, and clearance is at a minimum, no matter what 2 into 1 you do get, you should consider the long pipe to extend beyond the bag, or put a deflector on the end.
    You can check out some before deflector and after in my album.
