Has any one out there bought the rear crash bars that are on EBay if so are they any good, the price seems OK but what about quality ?

I bought them and they seem OK. I always heavily wax new chromed metal before installing. Note that they came with NO bolts so I had to go to ACE to get enough to fill all holes. So far so good over this Summer. YMMV.

What a timely thread. Looked at those on ebay for price only. I don't know about the quality. The Indian product is just to expensive to consider, so I guess I'll wait. In the meantime, let us know how you like the ebay one's

I'm very picky about what I install on my bike and have stuck with mostly Indian accessories because of quality. The bike is so beautiful that I don't want anything on it that looks cheap or doesn't match. With that being said, I took a gamble and ordered these off eBay and couldn't be happier. Yeah, the chrome is probably not as thick as a factory accessory, but they shine nicely all the same. They look great on the bike and the price is definitely right.

I have them and they are poor quality. chrome is the problem after a year or so the chrome will deteriate and you will have no recourse. wish I would have bought INDIAN.

I bought the black ones on eBay and they are great. It took me about 5 minutes to put them on. Fit perfectly. Saved a bunch of money. They came with the bolts, too.

I have had them for about a year. No bolts as stated previously and the ends that butt up to the bike where they bolt on had zero chrome. That spot of the bars is not too visible so I just live with it. Other than that no issues.
