Parts are pretty much available for the ironheads, depending on the year and what you need. I am in the process of making my '77 XLCH road worthy again and have had no problem obtaining parts. You may have to hunt around a little bit, again depending on what you want/need, but I have had tremendously good luck on eBay and a few other NOS OEM suppliers. IMHO, they are very worthwhile restoring.
