I have been talking about new bars for a little while now and even thought
about making some but Phil has the 9" pullback LA Chopper bars and they
are perfect for me. These bars are very comfy and look awesome!

Here is my problem....I have 3 choices to choose from before installing them.
1. Chrome: because I have chrome on the bike to break up the details.
2. Black: this is a safe all around choice.
3. Red and Black 2 tone: this matches my other powdercoating and it gets alot
of attention especially with the grips.

oh boy, thats what Im thinking too, but that means grinding down
the throttle side to allow for movement, maybe have to extend the
ends......ok, its looking like red and black.

I just have 2" extensions, I didnt want a too radical of a look but
just enough to make someone question....lol. If you look at the
upper fork you will see a wrap that I put on to cover the extension
junction. Thats how I have the spiked caps also....they are part of
the extensions.

it actually made it easier to handle, it offset the lowering affect
in the back. I can turn this thing from lane to lane in a U turn.
2" isnt really a big deal but it was good for what I wanted.

lol, thanks but I already put them on and I left them chrome. They are the perfect
length for the grips I have and didnt have to worry about extending them. I have
a shorty shield and its getting black chromed, so this may turn out great. I do like
the chrome bars and hope that I will remain happy because it is a royal pain putting
them on.
