Handle bar option

What do y'all think of these as a Bobber option? Looking at old photos of 1930s and 40s bikes/bobbers would seem to be appropriate.

Not my cup of tea, personally I prefer the flat bars. My concern would be the wiring. You might need the high handlebar kit, but these bars dont look as high as the ape hangers. So you would probably need to hide some of the excess wiring and maybe use a custom made brake line.

You will need the hose/harness/cable kit , but I like them.

So far behind , I think I'm in first place.

I like them too.

They are similar to some I am having made.

Cheerio,

They look good (and classic).
You’ll definitely need cable extensions, though.
Please post some photos if you decide to install them

I think they look great too. I get the concerns about cable lengths being a little off etc though. How much of a difference in height is there between these and the factory high bars? Is going with the different bars about the fit, the look or the cost?

Each one matters.
