    Either set of bars look good to me, if you're gonna ride it a lot, go for comfort.

    BTW, dang there's a lot of rake on this puppy!

    Re: INBetweener ... test ride!!

    I noticed the awesome rake right away too.

    I happen to like the first bars because I like riding my bike that way.

    The second bars give it a very different look.

    Build it so you can ride it. :D

    Keep the first set of bars; remind me of cafe racer clip-on bars. Love the overall style.

    Re: INBetweener ... not fishing!!

    well.. its been real hard not to roll the boat and go fishing whenever I get free time, but I gotta work tonight so I spent some time tody goofing with the bike.. I was riding it all last week swapping around bar config's and heres where it sits...

    [​IMG]

    it rides best like this, but I still dont like the look, I am gonna flip the stem and see if I like it any better, or I may still try and do something with the pull back bars..
    Anyway.. I got a super cool chaingaurd from beatcad, and shot some FB around the old striping and slapped it on.

    [​IMG]

    and started working on the headlight mount... :

    [​IMG]

    I'm having a hard time finding a headlight I like and desperately need to find an old fender and get going on that as well.. hopefully the flea market will produce tomorrow... :roll:

    Hey Scrumblero,

    Glad to here it's riding well.
    The chain guard looks really good on your bike.

    Good luck at the flea market.

    Re: INBetweener ... not fishing!!

    Always nice to see someone make something useful out of crap!
    It takes great imagination to look at a very old 5.25 floppy drive enclosure and think, "oh yeah, headlight brackets"!!!!
    Bravo on your redneck (and geeky) engineering!

    Re: INBetweener ...front end work..

    I figured you were going to tell us how you planned to turn that folding chair behind your bike into a porteuer rack.

    edit: Actually the seat from an old folding chair might make a god front rack. I'll have to stash that idea away.

    Re: INBetweener ...front end work..

    Hey Scrumblero,

    The bars, headlight, and forks matching looks really good. 8)
    It adds a new dimension.

    Maybe some simple white accents (pulled from the chain guard) might look nice on the headlight brackets.

    Good Luck!

    Re: INBetweener ...front end work..

    only a week left ! :shock: so I got on it early this morning!!

    new grips to start , 1" bars so I had to get em at the chopper shop...

    [​IMG]

    1manta set me up with some sweet fenders!!

    [​IMG]

    the front end still looked pretty heavy , so I figured I'd try and balance it out, with some skirts.

    I finally got wise and traded in my Wiss aviation snips for something more palatable to my old arthritic hands..

    [​IMG]

    SKIRTS!! :mrgreen:

    [​IMG]

    old riser bars = new fender supports!!

    [​IMG]

    gotta run my kid to tennis lessons and then I'm back at it in teh sweltering heat!! :p
