Flanders Company has been producing high quality handcrafted handlebars since 1945. All of the Handlebars featured on the are made of high quality seamless cold drawn steel tubing. They're polished, bent by the mandrel method thereby eliminating unsightly flat outer sections and then chrome plated or black powder coated to perfection.
When you’re ready for a new set of handlebars here’s how to go about it:
All measurements are made in normal riding position.
Height or Rise: Total height measured in a level plane.
Pull Back: Vertical lines from the furthest forward to rear in a level plane.
Center Width: Straight flat section before the start of the bends.
Width: Total overall tip to tip width, no grips or bar end weights.
New cables and new brake lines? When buying new bars, a rough formula to follow is to measure the increased heigth + 1/2 the increased pullback that the new bars will give you. This amount will be very close to how much additional cable and brake line that you may need. However, the best method is to fit the new bars to the motorcycle and then make the increased length determinations, if needed at all.
Additionally, make sure to allow room for your new bars to clear your gas tank on full lock turn.
