BR Custom New Wave 2 bar is finally here!

After an excruciating wait of over 13 weeks Fedex just delivered my new bar! It was ready 2 weeks ago, but the black pearl cables were back ordered. Bill said that his wait time has gone down now to about 4 weeks, much better for new customers. Sucks for me, but I'm happy to finally have the finished product in my hands.

I held it up on the bike and can already tell this bar is going to feel very comfortable over the heritage style bars I have on now.

Will post more pix when I get it installed.

Where did you order the black pearl cables from? I never heard of them.

Damn those are fat!! Is that 1 1/2 thick?

Black Pearl Cables are from Magnum. BR offers them on his site when you order bars. Not sure if you can order just cables through them.

The bar dimensions are 12" tall, 9" pull back and 32" wide. They are 1.5" thick, but cut down to fit the clamp and housings. They are fatties for sure!

I'm hoping install starts next week!

I should be getting mine in shortly. This week with any luck. And after looking at the pic I cannot wait. I got the 1.5" as well and seeing yours I'm pumped.
