When I saw the thread title I thought "hell no it's going to look like crap". But to my surprise it actually look good on this vrod model. I don't think it would suit Muscle or NRS though. Blacked out wheels would go great with black frame, forks and exhaust would make it look even meaner.
I made the bars, a buddy had 16" RSD apes and had an accident. He gave me his wrecked bars and I cut and tacked until it looked good enough for me. After i was done cutting, welding and supporting it turned or to be a 10" rise.
