    Maybe she will bring along her birthday suit. :wink2:

    Hey Frankenbob! Thanks Man. These bars are 10" rise and keeps me legal here in Fla.
     
  3. Bars look great. I was never an ape man myself. How about a side view. Nice to be legal. :thumbsup:

    My airplane was featured in a calender and they brought along a gal dressed in a 60's love child outfit. Sorry to hijack the thread but girls do enhance the photo.

    Hoo-boy! Yeah, my glasses steamed-over (stupid smartphone).

    If I had one of those during preflight, I'd probably crash....
     
  8. Fellers, the model must be attrached to my new bars - well, not new bars, I had these on my BSA A10 back in 1977 - the bike disappeared years ago never to be found, then last week I saw them on eBay - What!

    I bought them, and on they went - they are the same bars with the same marks I put in them all those years ago. I have never seen any like them before or since.

    I call them my RAMHORN Bars - they must have found their way back to me because they know I still have it, Carbon.

    Hey, and no jokes about my hands slipping off...

  10. Carbon, superb the way the bike has turned out. I am working out where to put the front foot pegs (some fab required) on bike 2 I tinkering with - just some bog-standard bars on there at the moment. I see you have yours a touch raised, and that looks interesting. Do you have a pick of you or someone sitting on the bike in riding position?
