Alternative handlebars

I'm looking to fit slightly higher bars on my Bobber, without the expense of changing the cables and plumbing. I thought I might try a set of standard bonneville bars, they seem to be about 3 inches higher which might be a problem, but they are a bit narrower which might just enable the original wiring/plumbing etc to fit. Has anyone any experience of this?

After doing the high bar job , I would have serious doubts about anything other than a 1" riser fitting with the stock set up. They were stingy in this area.

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

just use some stock Bonneville Bars, higher and cables fit with a little fidling.

Cheap to get and easy to try

3” risers will work with the cables and mini apes. A few people have posted them on Facebook. Wunderkind risers
