Default Wide beach bars - custom made

I designed some bars and sent them to BR Custom Cycles. After two weeks I got them back. In one word - impressive. The quality is great, and the bars were built just like the ones I sent him. I extended the wires, and Im waiting on a brake line, and clutch as well as finishing painting the bars to match the bike. I re-installed the bars to check the fit, and they feel great. I cant wait to see this project thru.

I got the wires ran thru last night. This turned out to be a task in itself. Ive ran wires thru bars before, but this was my first TBW. So, there was alot of wires, a sharp bend, and the bars are stepped down to 1" for the risers. It was tight to say the least. Props to BR bars for their clean edges inside the bars. After all the pulling and tugging I didnt loose any material from my wires.

The sequence that worked for me:
Use a vaccum to pull a small string thru the bars.
Attach a 14 ga wire to string and pull thru.
Pour dishwashing soap in the bars.
Attach 14 ga to wire bundle with electrical tape, leaving about 6" of 14 ga to overlap and tape with second run of taping.
Starting with Throttle side of bars, pull both TBW and handle bar controls together.
Finish by pulling clutch side control wires thru

I had to cut my pins off my wires. I couldnt get them to bend tight enough to make it thru the bars. Anyone know the part number for the pins? (08 RG)

I like the bars. Considered trying to find some beach bars for mine after sitting on a road king with them.

I think I would have made the bars black to continue the lines. But its just a personal opinion. would like to see more, larger pics when you are done.
