I ordered 2x handlebars to try different styles, and here you'll see the bracket I've made (but not completed) as well as some 1" dowel cut at 12" to simulate approx. height of risers I'll need. Likely lower.

Done for the riding season, just so I can ride! Next off-season, I plan on taking it apart and all the pieces I made I'll get powder coated so they're protected properly. Rattle-can'd everything so far. Also, I'll be extending the wiring and running it internal as much as I can to clean that up.

I do plan on getting a Memphis Shade for it keeping with the club style bike. I'm thrilled with how she's looking now.

Not necessarily my style, but looks good! I'd be curious to see how it looks once you put the fairing on it.
Thanks! I'm thrilled with it, though in hindsight I should have looked for an OEM set of bars to keep the thicknesses of tubing more relative. Something I'll change in the future.

The fairing will come much later since I'm unemployed from Covid-19. Whomp. At least I got her done I can ride.

Curious about your riser. Did you make them or buy them. If you bought I've been looking for something similar shoot me a link of so

So I changed it up again to something much more simple but very unique. I'll be putting the controls and everything on tomorrow.

Today I did the control install but haven't done the internal wiring yet - just wanted to get everything positioned and rideable once this rain stops. I like the bar-end mirrors but these ones don't seem to tighten enough in the bars themselves so I'll be going another route. After I setup the internal wiring properly I'll do a rattle-can of paint on it. I have Avon grips which I shortened to 4.5" because I like the look and feel of shorter grips. That pipe that protrudes from the clamp will also get cut down eventually. I'm thinking of using it for my phone mount.
