Hollywood handlebars
« on: May 28, 2020, 03:37:16 am »
Hello everyone. I am 58. Stock bars are a bit far. I Like the lean forward, aggressive bobber style. I will love to have drag bars. But for long rides, bit stretchy. Going higher than stock bars is not my choice. I am looking something like Harley Slim Hollywood bars. Preferably pullback not risen.
Has anyone tried this style. Or similar?

Update: Installed Hollywood bars out of softail slim. Look and feel good. Bit wider, closer and a bit higher. Comfortable.
Had to rotate risers 180 degrees; clutch and throttle cables rerouting; switch cables rerouted; have to go back to stock mirrors.
But not happy with throttle reroute. May be have to go for longer cables or cable extension. Anyone here using throttle cable extension. Please explain more about it.
