This is the only pics I have of my z-bars. They pull back and angle down a bit. They'll be chromed when I get my welds and everything smoothed out. Sorry I don't have any close up pics right now.

This is great so far. I like those Z bars Scooter. Everytime I see some cool 7/8 Zbars the price is crazy so a fabricated set would probably be the way to go.

There has to be more folks on here with custom bars. Come on fellas!

I took another pic for you last night that's a little closer. Those things had some CRAZY miter cuts on them! Took quite a bit of time to get them lined up just right and still have them symetrical. I didn't have a chop saw so I carefully cut each miter with a cut-off. The tubing is pretty substantial... I think I used 1" OD with .120 wall. I forget exactly... Thanks for the comments!

Those are cool. I like the Z bars and the ape hangers (really like the second ones).

What do you charge for them? If you don't want to share that here PM me.

Thanks to everyone so far for the pics!

Brian
