I want to make my own handle bars. z- style with a stretch back. pros? cons? i love the look of the bars and i don't want to pay 100 + for 1" bars that i'll have to modifiy. i havent seen any 7/8" bars that i like. db has some that are square that i was going to bite and modify to fit my controls. please, for my wifes sake, someone talk me out of this

metal may be cheap but divorces are expensive. i'll get some road time on the bars i have before i tear it up and make some crazy freakin bars.

Ok don't do it, I'll do it for you, pay me in cash under the table and I'll call the house, tell you're wife you won a prize... and send it to you in the mail.

I swear there used to be a firearms shop here that would do that for hubbies with guns coming out of lay-away... nothing like bringing home a free "door prize"

nothing like marital harmony either...

she probably wouldn't even notice. if i do it I'll do it at work because there is a welder and all the other tools i would need. like i said i'll probably do it next summer once i have some miles on the bike.

I have never done the "door prize" thing but i have done the "a guy at work gave me this out of his scrap pile" thing. she never noticed the price tag still on it.

All in all shes been a really good sport about this project, maybe because i promised her i would make her a Vespa when I'm done

Your Wife wants to be a Vespa ?
Please post pics of the build

Seriously, want do women want ? I'm looking for one that likes the smell of my "Gunk" brand cologne...
