Home built handlebars

I remember seeing bars like these on a cool Shovelhead chopper that I really liked. I decided to build my own with some 1018 mild steel tubing and riser bungs from Bung King. I think they turned out great. I just need to final weld the cross peice and decide on chrome or powdercoat.

9 Spoke Mags

Mocked up temporary front wheel spacers. Going to cut new ones for some 4130 spacer stock I have. I think the 9 spoke mags will look better powdercoated black.

Fender mounts

Fabbed up the lower and upper fender mounts as per Lowbrow's DIY tech tip on their site. Pretty simple but effective!

Building bars

I don't have mill or lathe so I fishmouthed the risers for my T-Bars with my Dewalt grinder and a halfround file. It turned out pretty good!
