Black or Chrome? Chizeled or Round?

Hello to all! I have been going back and forth about this for a while and been doing my research but just haven't found anything recently about this.

I am looking to get new handlebars, I'm set on 12" bars as I am 5'11 with a 32" inseam. I don't want to be too high up, looking to be about an inch or two below my shoulders. I have a Hammock seat which from what I know puts me up about 2 inches.

I was pretty set on either Yaffe's or Wild1 Outlawz depending on rounded or chizeled, but now thinking of Factory 47 if I go with chizeled. I know it's all personal preference but want to hear and see what you guys have and think about them.

Also trying to figure out if I want to go chrome or black, as the bike it all chrome right now I don't want to look unorganized with just black bars. Eventually will get black exhaust and possibly black forks to give a good contrast, that is all if I go with the black bars. If chrome bars then keep it all chrome.

Want to hear your guys .02 cents, any pictures and opinions are helpful!

Thank you in advance!

It'd help to see a picture of your bike... but I'm saying chrome.

I've got black bars on my chromed 15 Special. IMO they go well with the painted inner fairing.

I have chrome 14" Yaffee's; I absolutely love them. I'm 5'-10" with a 30" inseam.

The 47's are a little wider than the Yaffee's.

Unless you are planning a chromectomy I'd go chrome and chizeled.

I went with the Factory 47, 14 inch bars, black. Also had a few other things added, Stage III, Black pipes, breather and Tour Pak from my 2015 RGS. So you wouldn't look unorganized if you break up the chrome with a little color.

Take this for what its worth, but I fucking love the HD Chiseled Low Bars - They are about 10 inches in height and 9 inches at the grips - I run a CVO seat that has me down and back an inch in each direction and while these sit lower, I LOVE the control you have pushing and pulling the bike in and out of the corners - I am about your size, 5'11 34 inch inseam and came off a '15 that had 12 inch Tall Boy bars, same seat and my arms were straight shoulder outreach - These bars sit lower and remind me of almost a Flat Track Bar in terms of control of the bike - My shit is a Black and Chrome Combo too
