Don't know what year but they are the ones with separate headrests.
Width a tad over 430 at 450 but the side support bits on the seat pad are responsible for the extra width and they flex enough to drop between the Sportster chassis which is about 430mm between the rails. If you are in any doubt about them fitting I would try and find some in a scrap yard and measure them.
I bought mine from Ebay - also the new covers. There were 2 or 3 companies offering them at the time in vinyl or leather.
