And hopefully when i pick a set you know where i can buy some just like them. Thanks and i cant wait to see the cool styles you may have. If you cant post on here easily send pics to [email protected]

    Here is an '08 SS that had some sweet drag bars...problem is the company went under..

    They were really confortable except that I hurt my wrist and they were the wrong angle for the wrist problem and I could not drive it more than a mile without serious pain..

    Burly Brand. Got a set of the 1.5" Drag bars on the way. Going to give them a try on my BB pictured below. It has the Kewlmetal rake kit. Should give me just the right pullback for a comfortable ride. We will see. Will post some pics soon. Here is the link. http://www.burlybrand.com/dragbars/B28-387.aspx Welcome to the Forum.

    Mini ape hangers for me. I'm a smaller guy so this setup is easier for steering, easier on my arms, hands, back and shoulders.

    Default Mini apes. Not bad. I am still hoping for like a flying v look.

    Like a v shaped drag bar maybe. And risers that swoop over the tank. Or just somthing that really looks mean. Keep the pics coming or websites

    Default eBAY

    Go to eBAY and search for "1 1/4 handlebars".
    You'll find something there and reasonably priced.
    Great place to get ideas and check prices.

    Default How's it look now ?

    Take a look at my new Drag Bars. None of the off the shelf brands would fit with the Kewlmetal kit. So a good friend made and installed them here locally. Also fitted with a Joker left hand rear brake control I picked up on fleebay. Removed the foot brake and all the parking brake stuff. Now the rear brake is setup just like my V8 Chopper Planning on adding the Binford caliper next tire change. I'm stoked!!!

    Looks great,Roy. If you don't mind me asking,what did you have to pay for the handlebar and Joker m/c? That's a change I'd like to do to our trike.

    Thanks Conrad, It fit me much better too. The old OEM beach bars were a bit much at 39" across. they felt odd. These are 36" with a more relaxed seating and wrist position. The bike feels a tad bit heaver when jockeying around the drive way, but it sure feels solid once you moving, with actually less effort when turning.

    Thx Roy.

    Clint, The Joker hydraulic reservoir I got for $100, $500 for the bars. I'm lucky and can keep my coin local that way if I ever really need major motor or trans help it's always there, as I have neither the time or skill sets to do it myself, and I think my local dealer moved on. We used 1.5 Dom pipe. My buddy had to buy the Die for the bender so it all works out. "O" and he nailed it on the first try.

    What size m/c is that? Has Joker Machine discontinued that particular unit?
