Hi Greybeard,

sorry to tell you these are no Ace bars.

Such bars called Ape bars. *smile*

cheers Klaus

If you think, everything is under control, you are not fast enought.

I've always figured that isn't anything I'd not ride. But I really wouldn't want to be going far on either of these.

I wouldn't like to have to brush the bugs from my underarms!
My newly purchased 1988 HD FXST has cow horn bars, much too wide to fit through the gaps between cars. Was thinking of going for mini apes. Just 8" not 8'.
Cheers
