Budget minded Apes.

The wife's cousin. So I do what can to help.

He has a 16 RGS. Had to have it. And now he's so tight any add ons are an issue. My Brother in law donated slip ons. I'm gutting my head pipe for him. I gave him a few chrome add ons. But here I can't help other than find a quality set at a decent price. So I'm thinking mitered bars are out. Everything I see has the Damn step down to 1" at the clamp and the wires dump out the bottom. Who makes a bar that's 1.25" through out. And has the exit for the wiring in the feont. Adding 100 bucks for new risers isn't going to happen.

And for the record. This really isn't his fault. His wife does all the bills and told him they could afford the payment. She has to keep up with the Jones (Me and my Wife) for some reason.

+1 on the Road 6 Customs bars. I have the 13'' standard apes on mine and like them a lot. I think I got them on sale for around $160. The only issue is, I don't believe they offer them in chrome if that's what you're looking for.

+1 for Road 6 Customs. Easy install and they are inexpensive. I've done two sets now and the only thing you have to do is either pull the pin or tap it in(I did the later on both). Here is my buddies 2016, it took us about an hour. Both of them were the 13" bars, no extensions needed. The only other thing that you have to get are grips.

I have a question. Why does he NEED to modify the bike? Sounds like he can make the payments, but can't splurge on luxuries.

Been there many times in my life. I think I was the last person to get a color TV, a VCR, a CD player, a DVD player, cable TV, Cell phone, etc. Took 10 years to put myself through college and sacrifices had to be made.

The have to have it now attitude regardless of the ability to pay for it is one of the major problems in our society.

Harley is a risky investment right now because of all the sub-prime loans they are giving along with the number of defaults on those loans.

He's 6'3" and had a broken back from a previous accident. He does need to be more upright.

Actually his wife told him to take it back and they'd eat the loss. He wasn't having that.
