Highway Bars

I have just had a message from the person I got my highway bars from. They have made another set and these will be on ebay soon if anyone is looking for a set. I will post the link when they have confirmed that they are on there.

Hey guys, just a heads up, I was emailing back and forth with the guy that is selling these on UK eBay. He said he can ship to the states, but obviously shipping will be a lot higher. I had him check into shipping to me here in S. Georgia, with shipping, total would be about $156 for me. Just to give you guys a rough idea of where to look at financially if you're considering these. I am still considering them, but am also looking into a couple of other options, as well as waiting for the bosses approval (if you know what I mean).

1990 VN750
Got it on 9/10/09
7683 original miles when I got it
7870 current (constantly adding more)
Mods already on bike:
Kuryakyn Iso Grips with throttle boss
Kuryakyn Iso pegs with heel rests
Windshield (not sure what brand or style, just look at my pic)
Leather Saddle bags
Leather t-bag
Mods since I got it:
Wet Battery
Many more to come...

IMHO a buck 56 shipped isn't bad at all for these bars. A regular engine guard for our bikes without shipping is around 100 bucks. This ones way cooler and also doubles as folding highway pegs. If I had a buck 56 floatin' around (and a VN750) I'd jump on these. Just my .02.

those are cool.. and someone could make a killing here for them... they can't be that much to build.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but you could already get those brackets (polished) here from Lance I believe, you just have to add the pegs.

I know loads of people, even here, looking for a little more stretch on these bikes without compromising the reachability of the foot pedals. This seems like a basic enough design that does just that. I would definitely get one for the buddy I sold my 750 to. They'd be cheaper made here too right?

I beileve you are correct. Chad also sells something very simular..(just missing the bar that goes accross) and as always, you can make your own out of parts I found at Lowes for around 15 bucks:

(mine did not fold up, but if you know anyone that can weld, you could use folding pegs.

Not sure why one would need the cross bar, unless making them out of thinner metal. (like I did) If you like the bar, buy Chads and weld one on ....lol
