It's been about 4 years since I last rode my bike. All this time it has been sat in a shed feeling sorry for itself. Getting it ready for the summer and I have finally treated it to the new bars I have been wanting since I got the bike.

I got a set of Harley Dyna bars from ebay and they just fit without having to extend any cabling

Yeah, some nice cars in there. The white capri with the bonnet ornaments is my next job

Nice job! Is the riding position better? It looks it.

Eeh by gum, a Ford Capri, used to love mine, had the V6 and another with a bored out Pinto in it, mate had a Cross Flow lump in his but it always seemed somewhat breathless and looked lost in that engine bay.

Love that model bike, yours looks tidy. The slightly raised bars, work so well.  New handlebars 3005623951

The capri has a 2 litre pinto in it, used to have a 2.1 but that blew itself up. There is almost enough space to fit another one in there lol.

The riding position is so much better now in my opinion, no more leaning forward which is much better on my back.

A lovely looking set of higher handlebars Sir. I may get a slightly higher set for my bike, I have never felt as though apes, even lower hung apes would suit me. But the slight raise of these are nice, has me really thinking hard now.

I sometimes wish mine were a little higher too for the sake of the old wrists and my posture ...

After a couple of good rides I can say that it certainly helps with pressure on wrists and my aching back.

I know this thread is quite old, but how far back would you say the handles have moved, compared to the stock handlebars?

The member hasn't been on site for about three years, so I don't think you will get a reply here.
Looks to me like his bar ends come to the end, or just before the end, of the tank badge?
