Badbarz or HHI?

Has anyone dealt with badbarz in cali?

They a similar handlebar to HHI's internal wired and internally plumbed roadglide ape hanger. Just looking to go with the clean look no wires and no cables? HHI said that their bars would be 8-9 weeks out if ordered right now . He said that their outsoure for chrome is holding them up.

Great guys to deal with otherwise just do not want to have to wait that long . What is everyones opinion?

HHI has a nice designed bar, but when your mind is made up for the upgrade, I don't wanna wait that long for delivery...

Badbarz no longer makes bars for HHI, as per HHI they have someone new bending and welding the bars to spec per order, then it goes elsewhere for chrome or powder coat, the rest is made in house. the web sites still use some of the same photos. This is just what I got from phone calls to both. I talked to Jerry at Badbarz and did not get a name a HHI, I'm ordering the complete Drag bar set for my Roadglide soon just not sure from whom. PM me if you want more of the dirt, I don't want to jaw jack any more here.
They do look nice though.

Badbarz the ORIGINAL!

Badbarz is the original designer and producer of the 100% internal cabling system, we did supply HHI bars for about 2 years since they own a machine shop they figured they could make more money making the bars themselves. The reason there bars are simular looking to ours is they were very impressed by our designs and quality and could not improve on them so they copied all our parts to a tee, actually quite a complement.

emrhappy thanks for all the good information I am coming to the same conclusion about the difference between the bars . Like you reffered to Jerry I also called and he called right back not 5 mins after and was great to deal with finally someone that wants your buisness and wants to provide a great product. The bars look great and I am definately going with badbarz.!!! I would like to see the pics of them installed on your bike . What rise are they ? btw
