Also, here is my silicone bronze cubes i make to practice heat control on small objects.

Hell yeah! If your ever in a pinch for drag bars copper water pipe 7/8 bolts right on for 3 bucks roughly.
Far as comfort goes I normally go 18 inch apes,it'll vibrate a watch off your wrist but beats all the pressure on your shoulders if you wind up slumped over the tank on some buckhorn bars

Huge fan of the mini-apes here. Did that on my last two bikes, but the stockers are working for me so not planning any changes this time.

|Hexadecimus||I'm partial to rabbit ears. I was never a fan of the multi-bend bars or other chopcult hipster trends. I'm sure they're among the most comfortable though.|

Looks v/s comfort. The age old debate. I'm making a set that steps up instead of bending up. It gives a drag bar look, but comes up enough to get you off the tank.
Pick anything you want, measure it to fit your size, and I'll make it happen. I've been playing with spare pipe lately building a custom set for my fourtrax. I have 8 pie cuts in a pipe that is only 5 inches long and makes 2 bends on one of my earlier test pieces.
I don't like bending pipe and stretching it's grain structure. When welding, careful control of the heat affected zone and a series of pie cuts makes them as strong as a freshly make straight pipe.

bunnies gorillas or clubmans?
Y'all Care to pick favorites?
Apehangers seem tricky to fit to a stock vn and drag bars left me feeling pretty scrunched up on the tank..
but six bend bars are finally making a comeback in the chopper scene! I wouldn't mind seeing more of those on vulcans!
