I feel sorry for the person that is doing the install. Those look like they could be a nightmare to do internal wiring on.

Post up some photos when it is done.

he actually looked at them and said they wouldn't be bad because they are so fat.

The trick to the 'kinky' bars like that is to use good old GI Issue Dogtag chain... just drop it in and let gravity help it slide through till you reach the pull-holes on the bottom. Ductape the wires to the chain (about 4-6" of it), powder the wire sleeve up and let er rip!

I did a set of 18" bars about 6 years ago like that and had zero issues pulling the wires....

Just my 2cents!

Pretty bad-ass looking for a computer guy! (this, coming from an engineer)

What if the Hokey-Pokey really is what it's all about?

Until he realizes the inside diameter is still only 1" like all other 1 1/4 or 1 1/2 bars. LOL!!!

Done.

charged me 4 hours labor...pic enclosed! County Line Choppers ROCKS!!

I LOVE, L-O-V-E, LOVE these bars.....whooooop!!

Only small issue he had, was the anti lock breaks, they gave him a difficult time, but they did a great job and for bars and install, under $800 (and more importantly only down 2 days!!)

I might be a geek, but I am a 'self proclaimed bad ass', ok, so, I'm the only one that believes it, but still.....

I even was able to get the shop's wireless router working while I was there picking up the bike, he bought a cheapo and couldn't get it working. DONE. I figured for what little he charged me, it was the least I could do.
