LOOKING FOR...

So after seeing a set of Suburban Machinery bars in person on Luke's 919 this weekend, I'm now looking for a set of 7/8" for my FZ1.

I really liked the look and the way they felt when I sat on Luke's 919

Suburban has them of course but hoping I could come accross a set used?

Any leads would be appreciated!

Wonder what the chances of having Rob make me a set??? The man has tallent! His lane splitter bars are cool, just too narrow for what I'm looking for

Let me know what you have in mind! I really liked that feel of the position of those bars. Felt like a sport bike with clip ons, only more upright.

Chris do you want me to measure them so you can be sure they will clear?

Only thing I think would need to be different would be that they be possibly 1" less in the upward extension...I can explain later over the phone. I'll have to measure some with my bike as well

Brian...If you look at the M3 bars pictured on the Ducati...You'll see what I'm talking about. The upward, outward section is shorter then the one listed in the FZ1 photo. That photo is of a Gen 1 FZ1, They don't show a photo of a Gen2 (my bike) ... From looking at Luke's bars and then the ones listed for the Ducati, I think the Ducait design would work better for my bike and give me clearance for my front half fairing

I'm working on some measurements Brian so I'll get them off to you in the mail over the next few days.

Thanks a million bro!

Plans are hittin the post office today. I'm excited to see how these turn out...Brian, You da man

And yes, If they turn out as good as I hope they do (assuming my measurements and thoughts in my head are as good as I intend them to be) I will have them anodized in gold to go with the bike!
