    I like the wrap on the bars, but the shape doesn't quite fit for me.
    Could we see it with the Road Runner bars, if you have any?

    Not familiar with the bike, so this may be a stupid question. Can you turn the bars any? Like turn them so the part you grab is pointing outward about 45° or so?

    Love to see that you're saving this one. I picked up a very similar one last summer; I only got around to a mild cleaning and adding enough parts to make it a rider.

    With your set up your could theoretically run two sets of bars, a big ape style set on the outers and a smaller set or even a steering wheel from the center crown!

    I realized I either need a three speed coaster brake rear wheel or a drum brake front wheel . If anyone has either of these please PM me. Or I need to mount a brake mount on the front fork . Or try to do two rear brakes . Or settle with this being a single speed coaster bike . Hmm

    Apes are always good on a muscle bike. Or you could go over the top with Screamer style or some Ramhorns. Looks really good.

    You can turn the bars away but you would have to reach out for the bars to ride . I tried it . The bike looked cool but the comfort to ride wasn’t there.

    I may have the bars you are wanting. I'll get a picture for you.

    Is this what you're looking for? Had to go dig them out of my stash.

    Been saving these back for a few years but never had a bike for them.

    Funny I’ve thought about doing that for years every time I’ve had one of these bikes.

    But I don’t want to be on the bike when that’s happening.

    I’ll double check mine. My right side handle bar is cleaner than my left bar also. Thank you for looking for them and the photos .
