1" drag bars

I've tried everywhere else, why not give it a shot here.

I am looking for some broomstick drag bars. You know, the perfectly straight, zero rise, zero pull-back bars.

There is only one company making them for Harleys these days and I am damned if I am going to pay $80.00 for a piece of chromed steel when I can get a set of drag bars with any number of bends for $20.00. I don't mind spending the money if I was buying the best available, but Flanders jacked up the prices because they have the corner on the market. They can bite me.

Anyway.... anyone got a clue where I can get these? I have seen some naked sportbikes with drag bars....

u mean drag handle bars????????
not sure aobut them.. try Renthal

Having a shop in your AREA MAY BE THE WAY TO GO TOO......

And try searching for handlebars at riderforums.com theyve got more companies that ppl have used on their Nakid Z1000's there.... But id say have a shop make em custom, and get em chrome dipped....then they r made EXACTLY how u want em... But any of the bars the nakids use are often expensive....Renthals, Coerce and theres more but dont remember em... use riderforms and do a search... lots of ideas on handlebars there. Most nakids just use a low rise to get the more agressive body position... not totally flat bars.

First off preacher...

Second... I think Scott is right... getting a shop to custom make you a set of bars would be best... any chopper shop could do it... but you may pay just as much as that, as well.

Just call OCC or WCC and have them make you a set! Or maybe try to find out where they order their stuff... the same goes for any of your custom MC shops... they may be able to steer you in the right direction..

Come on admit it...you're a Trekkie!! It's ok!! How pissed were you when they killed off Kirk in the movie Star Trek Generations?

But that may be the trick to what he wants!

You can get straight one-inch bar at most hardware stores. All the Jap sportbikes that use regular handlebars use 7/8 inch bars, and they probably won't fit on your Harley. Have you tried JC Whitney?

read the description on the product. Straight 1" with dimple. Even us dumb japbike cruiser riders are smart enough to swap out our risers and bars to double the number of accessoies available.
