Handle bar question

86 vn750
I've searched and searched and I'm trying to find some tall T-bars something similar to what all the Dyna bike have now days. The closest I can find is the eBay 6" bars for our bike. Is there anyone that makes 10" ones that are fairly straight up and down bars? Or is this something I am going to have to take to the workbench?

The problem is, those are mounted by bolts from underneath. The Vulcan has standard 7/8" bar clamps...so you would need a new top fork clamp, or some type of riser... Like these but taller:
2" Pivoting Bar Risers for 7/8" Handlebar ? Rox Speed FX

And a drag bar on top. I've seen "dog bone" risers that might get close to the look you want, like these:

but it be a lot simpler to just buy a Harley ....

I agree the simple fix for this would be a Harley lol I've seen dog bone risers most are 4"-6"
I understand the difference with our top tree vs the bolt on bar trees. I think I'll have to buy some 7/8 DOM and build what I'm looking for.
