Electra Glide Bars?

Is anyone using them? I'm converting my Ultra Limited to a Road Glide, but I don't care for the stock Road Glide bars. I have the 2" pull back bars, and I'm happy with them. I know the base is a little wider than the RG bars, but will I have any problems using them?

They are also bent a little ways up. Other then looking kinda funny, they should work.

'If I live, I will kill you. If I die, You are forgiven.'
Such is the rule of honor.

I had some on the 03 RG I just sold last night. They are wide at the bottom and I can't say they are the best option for looks but I loved them for function. I had to roll them down a little because of the 12" Klockwerks I was using. The ones I used did not have the bend in them. I was told they were stock Eglide bars.

I have them on my bike right now.... i thought they looked kinda cool, but the more i look at them the less i like the look. They are def better than nothing but they look real bulky and kinda wide. Hope this helps a bit...

I ended up buying Wild1 517, and 09 SERG bars. I really could use bars that are somewhere between the two pairs that I have. The Electra Glide bars are a lot wider on the bottom and would look really funny.

I would suggest the HD Heritage style bars(55864-09), the KromeWerks +2 Sweepers, or some standard 12"-14" apes.
