Swap Meet Bars

Well I've been putting it off for a while and being lazy about it, but last week I finally decided to go to a swap meet and pick some bars out and try them out. It was the Midwest Antique Motorcycle Clubs show and swap at the Boone County Fairgrounds. Decent turn out of vendors and met up with a couple of old timers that have helped me out along the way. Always some nice bikes on display. Anyway picked up two sets of HD takeoff handlebars. Took 15 minutes when I got home and decided to run these. I still have plans to run and old 2 piece style riser and split the bars, but only about 1 other person on the site knows what the hell I'm talking about so I'll update the thread when I change the riser to show.

Check out my mad photo skilz:

Thanks for the compliments guys. I have actually modified it a little more. Cut the bars in half and used a vintage riser to replace the ugly chrome crap. Put a little less then 100 miles on her today and the new position worked out perfectly.

So happy for a total of $10.
