Got really tired of the stock handlebars so I bit the bullet and replaced them finally. Went through all the catalogs and checked the Hardly dealer. Had em but at their prices, $200.00+. Found these on line from a vintage Hardly parts supplier. $72.00 to my front door. Make a fantastic improvement over the stock unit. Low speed, turns and just cruising are now much more comfortable and I really like the looks. Had to re-route the front brake line, clutch cable and left side handle bar wiring harness but it all works fine.

Screwed the pics up. To follow.

Bars are undimpled, 7" center, 10" tall, 15" pullback, 31" end to end

Don't look at all the crap in the garage, it's a work in progress.

Nice one, they look good.

Been lookin at changing ours at some point. I find the standard bars are a tad low and need to comeback about two inches to be really comfortable on long rides.

Being the useless bugger i am, i find looking a catalogues etc not much help, they all look too similar.

Funny how that goes.
The V2k bars are perfect for me.
Every other bike I've ridden I have had to get risers or different bars.
A lot of people complain about the ergo's on this bike. I'm 5' 7" 27" inseam.
Enjoy your new bars.
Now you have to get a better seat. :D
