Default Sporty parts catalog

Hey there,
I've been doing some searching and even found a page on here that had links to both service and parts manuals but the link I needed was dead. I've done some Googling and I can't seem to find a 70's Ironhead sportster parts catalog for my 79'. I'm fixing the tranny and I want to make sure I am replacing the exact right part. I have a service manual, I just need a parts manual, hell, it doesn't even have to be electronic.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Pete. I know it's a bastard year and I agree with you. Hmmmm, shoot. May have to wing it.

motor /tranhy wise the 79 is pretty much the same as its immediate predecessors. outside of the new frame etc. What makes the 79 so different from the 80 and 81 models is the tranny sprocket cover with the brake MC on it. this caused the need for a 1 year only rear pipe, thats it! I think the 81 got a new starter but that doesn't concern yours. Its amazing how the oddbal brake and pipe issue turned the whole bike into a 1 off lemon to many people. If the pipe is an issue, convert to the 81 style sprocket cover and brake stuff and run pretty much any Ironhead pipe
