Try Alloy Art or Shadetreefabrcations.com. I really like shade trees bars I may go with them for the RGC but if not I may put them on my old bike that Im going to make a bobber out of.

I talked to rocks from rocks chop and I sent him a pic of the Trask Performance Bro Bars and he said he could build a similar set, but the only thing I didn't like about him was that he only uses 1" tubing. This may make pulling all of those wiresthru them plus I am going with 14"-16" high bars and the 1" I think may look too skinny. Rocks would be alot cheaper though.

Chainsaw got photos of his 15" posted somewhere. He wrapped the uprights with leather. Gives em a little thicker look. I just ordered 11" Holy Johnnies/Coffin mix from Rocks.
Checked out ShadeTree (45 minutes of "Bettys" before I even found the bars). Nice bars. Nice Bettys too.

At one time I thought someone enquired to Rock about making 1 1/4" bars.. Guess either he said he can't or won't. I never asked, although I do like the looks of thicker bars.
Yeah, I wrapped mine in leather,.. redid them a week ago and added a wire loom around the wiring flattening it out. Gives the appearnce of 1 1/4 bars now, but gives it that "Leatherface" stitched up look I kinda dig.






For a wounded man shall say to his assailant,
'If I live, I will kill you. If I die, You are forgiven.'
Such is the rule of honor.

Well there may not be look alikes but I think these bars may even look better than Yaffees. Only drawback is they are about $150.00 cheaper but you have to get them powdercoated. I think I might order a set.
