    Ok, for all you fabrication types out there, here is something to ponder on your way to work.

    Ive been wanting to add rear crash bars to the V*, the chrome loops that sit in front of the bags.

    Ive attached a pic of a Road King so you can see what I mean. Also becaue I have not been able to find these special made for the V*, what would it take to mod a Harley part to fit?

    Ive seen dozens of them on the web, Ill buy them if somebody can tell me how possible it is to make them work.

    That's a tough one. I've seen these bars on some V*'s, but I don't know who made them or if they were customized to fit. It's kind of like floorboard extension brackets that will work with highway bars without modifying anything.
    I have just completed fabricating a prototype set of brackets that will work with the highway bars, and be a simple bolt on. It looks like they are going to work well. They will move the boards 4" forward and raise the boards about 1 1/2", and they will not interfere with the Yamaha Big Bars. I do not believe anyone else makes these.
    I imagine the bars would need to bolt on to the passenger foot peg mounts somehow. It would be best if they had two different fastening points. But I would need to look at the rear of the bike to figure something out.

    I would contact Lindby and ask if their rear bars would fit.

    I thought I had seen this somewhere. I believe they modified a set of Sliverado bag mounts to accomidate the bars. Check it I think these were Yamaha Road Star bars.
