Talking OK...Lets try this again. Updated Pics of my new Mini apes

I think the pics I posted last night were just unflattering. These are a littlke more representative of how they actually look on the bike. My friend is coming by my house tonight with the 12" Klockwerks windshield to see if a taller windshield will look better with these bars. I'll post more pics when we get it on.

Still debating if I should keep these bars and go ahead and order the cables and brake lines. Once I start cutting wires for internal wiring there is no turning back (or not easy that is). I must admit the bars are extremely comfortable and they wild looks are definitely growing on me. I think a taller sleek shield is going to really set these bars off. Wno knows though...

I'm already $500 in these bars so spending more for cables and new windshield can be costly. I need to make sure I definitely want to keep these bars...

Like in the other thread...your comments, good or bad are welcome.

I think it's the gussets that become the main focal point when you're standing in front of the bike. It's up to you, it is a lot easier to swap windshields than to swap bars, LOL.

That's cool he has a shield so you can really tell. Take some pics of it with the shield and post them. Good luck!

Personally, I think they look like antlers. I love your bike otherwise, though.

A little tall for my taste on a bagger. The important thing is if YOU like them,.. no one else matters.






For a wounded man shall say to his assailant,
'If I live, I will kill you. If I die, You are forgiven.'
Such is the rule of honor.

Haha, on the other hand, you could be a hit at Christmas parades by running red headlights!
