Thumbs up Got my BLACK OEM monkey bars today

I ordered from DR.V-Twin November 2 and after stuck in Canada Custom for about week they finally arrived in great shape even though the box was beat all to h3LL. I can harley wait to get 'em installed even though I won't be able to test ride now for about 4 or 5 months.

Thanks to Drew for hooking me up with a great deal.

I may have to call on some experienced members when I get into the install for internal wiring tips. I think some one did a great pictorial and instructions on internal wiring and install of the beauties. BUT first I have to finish the house mods for the wifey....paint, counter tops, sink, etc....all part of the trade for bike mods.
cheers!

Keep the faith man, they'll show up. Mine are the 10" bars and were in stock at time of order. Did you order chrome or Black?

Here's a shot with a tape measure
Now I have to find the time for install...I have all winter I guess

Hey Joke
They were $360 bones PLUS shipping ($45) plus Canada Customs($31.02) Why Customs needed a slice is beyond me. Oh ya they threw in a Dr T-shirt. I haven't got my credit card bill yet to see what the exchange rate was but I think it was close to par. I had more than enough set aside in my budget (at least thats my story and I'm sticken' to it)

BUT before I do any thing I need to clean up the garage so I can install the bars. Some of you will know what I'm talking about. Weather seal/insulate, put the heat on, put the coolers away, roll out the lawnmower to the shed in the back yard and roll in the snow blower. Then I'll have room to get busy. Bunch of pieces to come off for the powder coater along with the fairing removal to install MY NEW BARS...woohoo!!!

Thanks - same here, winterize/put up the power washer, put the lawn chairs away, get the Xmas tree down, sell the Vette to make room in the garage to work on the bike; I already brought the heater in from the shed cuz I had to work on the car (multi-switch went out). Those bars are too expensive for my taste; was hoping Dr V-T was a lot cheaper! Guess it's still the Heritage Bars then...

Oh ya...and get the snow blower out too!!!!

Hey Joke,

Road6Custom bars are only $149 if you like the looks of them. I bought 9 inch ones, but I'd go at least 11 if I ever did it again. There are lics of them in my album.

Thanks, those levers are cool - matching the bars and all. Ya, Road6Custom has everything on 15% sale now so the bars would only be $123. But I didn't see any 11" ones. I'll look some more...
