Default Buckhorns

Judging from my ideal hand position, I should be using Harley buckhorns on my 800A. Anyone ever done this conversion? How's it ride and got any pics?

Have you tried Vulcan 900 Classic handlebars? They are quite wide 'buckhorn' style bars (though a little 'flatter, might be an easier conversion.

Yes, the stockers are pretty close. I picked up a set of buckhorns on ebay and I have my last stock set from my last 800, which my son now owns. We put fatboy bars on his and it's a pretty good fit. When I put the 2 side by side, the bucks are little taller and wider at the top bend, but pull back the same length, and close the hand position a little more.
