Much wider and much more angled back than LS bars, for instance.
I forgot to include your quote.
SS said "K1 bars are the solution concerning this dilemma for me. I do wish they came in chrome but . . . . Someone reported the /2 sidecar bars (which ARE chrome) being the same bend but I have had both and I don't think they are."

...and you are incorrect on your bar description.

1955-1973 euro bar and R65LS have the same rise and same pull back and bend. The only difference is the R65LS bar black.
The 1955-1969 euro sidecar bar has the same rise and bend as the above bars but they are 1.5" wider.
The K1(black) and Mystic(chrome) handlebar is the same as the above 55-69 sidecar bars.

Did I have a weird set of side car bars? I think I have owned two sets of them but maybe I got them from the same place? I had them at the same time I had K1 bars and they were not the same. The K1 bars were bent back and down more. Mystic bars are more like K+N super bike bars if I remember right but I don't think I have personally ever owned any mystic bars like I have side car bars and K1 bars.

Oh well, we can just disagree until we get some photos's or something. It's not that big a deal unless you are shopping for bars.

I did a last shoot of my BMW as it is now.




I am going to change quite a few things, mainly technical things, but more than a few look things too.

Like the look of those rearsets, much better than those nasty looking Raask items. Where did you get it from?

Ever consider making rear sets for 1985+ airheads? I'm trying to figure out what I should do with mine, specifically with the rear brake.

It is in the works right now. Should be ready by Spring.

Nice! I was going to try to make the fully indexable set from DCC work, but was wondering what to do with the rear brake. I'm not set up to fabricate stuff. I'm barely set up to wrench. Any price estimate so I can start to save up? Keep us posted.

Didn't think to check your signature links. I'm liking the quality of the build unfortunately I'm not a fan of quite a few design choices. Back to plan A I guess and build my own.

I hope those subframes don't hurt anybody. I highly suspect I would fold one of those up on my first weekend ride. It would probably be something like my shock stud snapping off. Not good!

Lol, it's a oil stain.

The seats not terrible. It's actually fine on my rear end and frank and beans but does hurt my inner thights. Prolly going to take it to a upholsterer and have some more foam out on.

As for the Sub frame, I hear ya. I'm a light 175lbs, and they been making them for a few years now. And have not hurt of any folding yet. It's a weekend toy not a cross country bike. Time will tell
