Schweeet! now you got my brain wondering what I can coat with this stuff. Does it come in colors? Why yes, yes it does! Here have a lookie;

New Bars = SO GOOD!

Thanks Dale!





It's like these bars were meant for this bike. I am really preferring the bend over the stock bar.

Ignore the zip tied turn signals. I'll have some different mirrors to take care of those. :)

Man, that was fast shipping! Glad you like them. I found them to be pretty comfortable, but they have "attitude", too. What do they look like from the front?

Looks like an awesome road, but MAN is it ever narrow!

Yeah, exactly! But the motorhomes are a little scary! I could just imagne coming around one of those bends and one of them be driving lazy on the wrong side.

You have to give your self a litle safety margin on the blind corners, also learn to read the terrain to know wich turns who tightens at the end.
But a pair of Monoblocks shure would'a been nice at the end when the brakes started fading.

Also, the newer style bullet turn signals would look better that those large ones and can be purchased in black.

I think the low Z-bars look good with the Custom riser. Personally, I would have angled them parallel to the front end, but it's your bike.

I just put them where it seemed most comfortable.

Well I just made myself a bunch of work, but I bought the correct tank for my 77, a fender that isn't the right year but should look better than my cut up original, and a used mustang seat for $100.

Seat needs recovered, I dropped it off already. The guy took a long weekend off, his wife said he'll call me monday with a price.

The paint is in terrible shape and super thick, going to take a while on it. Fender seems to be a normal thickness, so shouldn't be a whole lot of coats to sand off.
