    I think it is a great looking motor bike. I have seen no indication that ape hangers went out of style on motorcycles, so enjoy them. To each his own.

    Hey ELhefi -

    Keep the handlebars... They look good.

    I have not seen this comment before.... I have handlebars a couple of inches higher than standard mountain bike bars. I like long rides. After some 20 miles or so, I start getting pinched nerve pains in the shoulder blade areas. Probably because I'm leaning over all that time. Let me know if that occurs with those handlebars. If not, I just might get new handlebars myself.

    760 highway miles and counting.

    no pinched nerves its super comfortable for long distance. your back sits at 90 degrees instead of being hunched over
