Dear god in heaven

Will someone please help me find the name of similar kinds of bars to these?
I've seen: Zephyr, Reverse T, Reverse drop T, and Squid.
I saw some that I really liked and now I can't find them anywhere.
They were a bit longer than these, but very close.
Thank you guys very much.

"Bars you can use while wearing handcuffs"?






On a more serious note, perhaps "narrow wishbone".

Dismantling, sawzalling, and rattle canning does not make a bobber.
Those are STEPS toward customizing, not customizing unto itself.

Those bars look dangerous to me. The grips are to close together to give you enough leverage.

I agree those bars are ridiculous, and that bike would be difficult and unsafe to ride. Somebody obviously thinks it looks cool though, and for some that's all that matters,

how much leverage do you need while riding? A slight right hand push to go right, and vise versa at speeds. the only time you really turn the bars is when you're going slow, and at that you don't need a lot of leverage. just my $.02

I would check out some swap meets if you have any events around where you live.

I don't know if these guys ship, but you could always ask.

Right, except if and when you hit that pothole or hot tar strip and slight movement causes over correction.

More so on a bike with a shorter trail dimension, like the 250 Rebel has.

Priceless fact.





My guess is you won't find anything like that available for the reasons mentioned above. It wouldn't be difficult to fabricate though, just take a set of wishbone bars and cut them down accordingly.

I wouldn't do it though, I prefer a wider bar for all the above mentioned reasons and more.

You might be able to control the bike under ideal conditions with those, but what about when you suddenly find a car a few feet in front of you that came out of nowhere. Those bars would be suicide in an emergency situation.

Talking a whole other beast, we always cut our handlebars shorter on our dirtbikes to be able to get through tight trails with trees, and it never seemed to slow me down or take away my ability to run down rutted out trails or going through whoops, or any of the other obstacles out in the woods. They were not as short as those bars in question, but they were always cut as short as they could and still able to mount levers.
With that said I'm not trying to argue with anyone, I'm just giving my opinion from 30+ years of off-road riding, and less than a year of true cruiser type street riding.
with no disrespect meant JerryH, if you're running at any kind of speed (45 mph+)and you find yourself a few feet in front of a car pulling out, than that is just your unlucky day, wide bars or not. even at 20' you better have some quick reflexes and decision making skills.
