    I agree. I like the third set best. They add a little more flare.
    You've got a really cool looking bike! :D

    #3, but shorten them about one or one-and-a-half inches.

    Agreed, #3 flipped. You have a chopper (two if you count the El Guapo), you need a boardtracker young'en!

    Glad you all like #3 :wink: I wasn't gonna change them anyway :lol: Don't think I'm gonna flip or shorten them, these are pretty comfortable as is 8)

    Hey Doc, I have a boardtracker too :mrgreen:

    I forgot you had a Firestone 500. I love those bikes. Mine is probably my favorite vintage bike. Isn't worth much, but I like it!

    Well, if you're going to ride it a bunch, then comfort is important. On last year's bike, I put ride position over aestetics. This time around, there are enough minor issues with my bike that I think favoring form over function slightly won't be a problem. But yeah, I agree, your #3 choice was preferable.
