Handle bars

I just took off these high rise bars off my new to me LS. The styling isn't my cup of tea, but they are comfy to ride with. I did a few miles before I changed them and it's nice to NOT have your back hurt, to bad I'm so hard headed about stuff like that.

If you fancy the styling and want your back to feel better They are yours for Free....... just comp the shipping.

I'd trade you the long cables for short ones too,  but I don't see how we would do that without putting both bikes out of commission.

I might have a ue for these. A combination of better-on-the-back and needing a better reach for sidecar turning.

I've been wanting to do something with this for a while but held off, partly because I wasn't sure about the cable requirements.
