Factory 47 Convert

Hey all,

After much debate on which bars to get, I ended up going with the 12" Signature Bars from Factory 47, and could not be happier. I went back and forth for weeks on whether to get the 12s or 14s, and am very glad I went with the 12s. For reference, I am 5'10" and running the stock seat, and these hit me just below the shoulders.

While I was at it, I changed the stock grips to the Diamond Black ones from Harley, and went with the Edge Cut Levers as well.



More upgrades to come, slowly but surely.

I was back and forth myself. I k now the 14s are great. But that look. Couldn't do it. Got the 12s and then the cvo seat that's down and back a couple inches.

Bike looks great.

Congrats on the new bars. They look great.
I just purchased a set of 14" Malos from a Forum Member.
Looking forward to getting and installing them.
