If you can handle the riding position, I would definitely go with low bars, I mean really low, like several inches lower, about even with the top of the headlight. The high bars on risers still give it a cruiser look.
I won't spend more on a bike than I think it's worth, but if it's a good deal, I don't seem to have a problem buying bikes I don't need.
