I decided to add a highway bar to my Chief Classic . Seeing the Kuryakyn toe pegs, I thought it was time. And who knows when the bike may tip, although it has not to date. After looking I decided on the Chrome TCMT 1-1/4” unit from eBay for $137 with free shipping. The cheapest Genuine Indian was $300 with shipping and the dealer wanted over $400. I have to say it is real nice. It was boxed and packaged perfectly. The chrome plating is as good or better than on my Indian OEM Scout bars and it fit perfectly, everything lined up. It’s rugged too. You do have to buy the correct bolts. Theirs are trash and the wrong thread pitch (bad for an aluminum frame). Actual Install was about 20 minutes and everything was in perfect alignment. I spent more time waxing it and jacking up the bike than wrenching it on. If you buy one, get 2-stainless m8x1.25x20 for the top and 2-m10x1.5x25 for the bottom. Have a helper since you do have to remove the right floorboard to get at the bolt and having someone hold it makes it easy. The bolts were less than $2.00 each. I sprayed the drain holes with a hearty WD40 coat to quell any internal corrosion. The bar was on EBay from Motomart11 as the seller.
