Broomstick handlebars.

My brother wants to put one on his 02 Nighthawk 750.

I think it would be comfortable on my 9er, But worried about how stupid it would look.

Anyone have any pictures of a 9er with a broomstick handlebar or is good with the photoshoppermajig?

That's a very overpriced 28" long piece of tubing. "Broomstick" handlebars lose their allure after the first 5 miles or so.

Try here: Amazon.com: Emgo 23-12561 Chrome Finish 7/8" Steel Handlebar: Sports & Outdoors lots to choose from, and quite a few bargains too. Those are handlebars.

That should point you in the right direction.

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.

In my opinion, it would look really stupid and uncomfortable as hell. But that's me. You do you.

Does this napkin smell like chloroform? Just kidding baby lemme buy you a drink.

Thanks Rob!

And I'm sure it would look stupid too, just a curiosity mostly.

LOL, that almost looks like it could be a fake ad trying to be funny.

My buddie's bike has almost straight bars on it - about 2" pullback, but they are REALLY wide.


SUCKS. I hated riding that thing. Felt like I was telling a fish story everywhere I went " IT WAS THIS BIG!!!"

No kidding! $58 for a straight piece of steel tube??? You can buy the tubing for a couple $ per foot and make your own. I don't think it would look 'terrible' but I'm pretty sure you'd hate 0" pullback.

I am currently running staight bars and have zero issues. Even rode a couple hours with them this summer. If interested I can get a couple shots of how it looks.
