New Old Bars

As you may have read on here before, my friend Don passed away last year far too early. Don was a real, true blue, no nonsense, old school biker in every sense of the word. Don forgot more about motorcycles than most of us will ever know, and he didn't forget much. I was lucky enough to get a set of Don's old handlebars for my chopper project. I don't have any idea what he ran them on or where he got them or anything, but to me it's an honor to run something with an undoubtedly cool chopper history on my bike. On a side note, they were way to wide so I cut them in half and narrowed them 4" to make them fit the bike better. A little more polishing and they'll be ready to go.
