I am making highway bars. The plan is to bent a 1" steel pipe to the desired shape, weld and either chrome plate or powder coat (I am leaning towards paint, chrome would make the bike too shiny, but that is just me). At this point I am done with bending. Since my HF bender could not accept the pipe as a single piece, I had to cut it in two pieces and will weld back. There are several ways of attaching these bars to a Vulcan 500 frame, and I haven't decided yet which one to follow. I would appreciate if those of you guys who have made your own bars could post close up pictures of how they are attached. Thank you! For some reason, my bars are upside down on the picture.
