Who makes the best repro exhaust for a panhead as far as fit and function in your opinions?

Dennis Corso is the guy. And, its made in the good ol' USA! A lot of the other parts vendors sell his stuff as well, so chances are good that no matter who you buy from, if it says Made in USA, it came from Dennis. And, for the most part, its top quality, fit and finish are excellent.

Hog,
Chrome is good, picture is bad (its tough to take good pictures of chrome stuff, specially with a flash). Speaking only from what I have personally purchased/seen from Dennis Corso.

again, jmho (not an endorsement, only my personal observation)

Paucho, might not be spelled right. They are in Nevada and their pipes fit perfectly. Several others don't align right & the tab is off etc. But the ones I got from Paucho went right on with no problems.

I have a set of Paughco pipes on my 57, not OEM style, but they did fit, even the "squish"pipe, without any swearing, and the quality is much better than most aftermarket crap.

Hey guys---I to have a set of paugfhos, but not original-style-I have 13/4 drags on. The chrome quality was good as mentioned,I have got these about 7yrs ago now & chrome is good no pittig only a few flat spots from layin it low-my fault for having a little fun!-And the price was great I paid $68 at that time for the pair! Fitment was good-I just took a hacksaw & made a few extra cuts where they slide over the spigots. It was not nessessary Its just something I do. No complaints here!---Richie---58flh 8)
