As I wrote, it's my very personal opinion. I can see what you mean and why you want these bars on the bike. You like them and they suit you (and the bike). That's what counts. We (or at least the most of us) build the bikes for ourselves, so WE have to like what we build.Thanks for the honest opinion my friend. I know the bars aren't gonna be for everyone, but I really love them. The relative grip position to the stem isn't much different to many other bars. They are about the same width as the longhorns I had been using. But they do have a forward thrusting mass for sure. To me that is their appeal. Ever since I saw my first pair of Murray Mark 3 bars (which these are designed from somewhat) I wanted some. I loved @karfer67 's Galt Town Hooligan and later Bighit's Sidewalk Super Villain Supernaut. After riding around and feeling and seeing them in the real world rather than just in my shop and courtyard, I wouldn't swap them out for anything.

pretty cool how it fits in the tank and how it looks as stand , great thinking!
Great work on that stand King!
Even the bottom bracket is a bit Art Deco & the 444 is pretty awesome that's my lucky # it appears pops up often to me in the strangest places
Hmmmmmm, I may just give my PHAT Leper Primus saddle a try tomorrow and see how she looks.Awesome. The only advise I can muster is a different seat. This bike needs a black leather seat in better shape. The rest of the bike is so slick and the seat is too barn fresh.
But hey, you're the builder. Whatever you like.
