I picked up a set of the ROAD 6 CUSTOMS RoadGlide bars from ebay. The bars seem to be good quality, fit well and fairly easy to install. Shipping was fast. I have never installed bars before and didn't do any research prior. It took me about 3 hours start to finish. Had I looked into it more, I could have shaved about 30 minutes off.

I find them to be a lot wider and a bit taller than stock and they do come back a bit. Not a whole lot in my opinion but they feel great for me. I'll probably tilt them back a little further in the future. I am 6'4" tall. On to the pics......

The bars are supplied with plastic caps which I didn't like. I really wanted spikes so here is what I came up with. Just an automotive soft plug and a spike from ebay.

I still need to either powder coat the washer or just pick up some chrome washers.

Very creative. I can see others expanding on this idea.

That's real creative good job! Definently get the chrome washer matter of fact you should see about getting a 1/4 spacer chrome then the spike

nice touch with the spike, can you slouch back at all or do you have to sit up relatively straight??? Thanks

I've got mine tipped back quite a bit because I have a solo that sits me way back. I have a 38" sleeve length and I am still leaning forward. They are not the optimal bars for me but they will work for now. With my stock seat I can sit back a bit and not straight up.

Thanks for the reply juiced...price is right but looks like I'll get something with more pullback maybe the BR'S

The Road 6 Custom bars look great. Good to see more pics. The soft plug was a great idea. Im still undecided between the Road 6 Customs style and Rocks Chops Coffin bars, that Chainsaw has/had on his bike. I'm 5'10" and the stock bars are great, but cause me to slouch forward. Also looking for something with some style. want to be in the ballpark of 12-14" bar height

I had those same bars for a year and couldn't get comfortable to save my life, I kept getting stingers in the back of my shoulders and neck, I finally went with a new set of Todd Cycles 12" and I am 100% happy with the craftsmanship, fit and finish, over all comfort and the looks. Great bars I would highly recommend them..
