This rarely happens.

So I live in Australia so access to all the good stuff such as Factory 47 Signature 12" Black bars would cost me very close to $1000AUD landed, about $680USD but theyare what I really want for my Road Glide.. So I just decided to do a Ebay search and low and behold there is someone in Australia selling brand new Factory 42 Signature Bars 12" Black...$500AUD. I'm thinking na must be in the USA .. I read the the full ad and not only are the in Oz but he is literally a few suburbs over from where I live like 30K's (18miles). He had them bolted up the to risers and no cables or anything pulled thru and decided that he wanted 10" ..
Sometime right time and right place .. Normally it would be like a 5 hour drive or over the other side of the country and you would have to pay some ridiculous postage fee...

Now if only I could find a set of Kahuna Heated Grips in Black .....

Nice score on the bars! Call your area dealer and see if they can order you up a set of those grips. Or, is there more to it being that you live in Australia? Find out what it takes and costs to ship from Chicago. The better dealers in my area will do 15-20% off for Black Friday. I got no problem throwing you over a set on your dime.

As they say, "I'd rather be lucky than good!" Nice catch on those never used bars. Glad to see us U.S, riders aren't the only ones to ever 're-purpose' the dining room table! You must be single, or you have a very understanding OL.

Nice one. Good to see someone getting a bit of luck, all the best to you and your ride! What else are you doing to it? I have the kahuna heated grips and I'm very happy with them, they are really good!
