    Looks good! The grips have a WLDR “shorten” appearance, but probably a softer grip than hard rubber.
    It all blends.

    they look like dirt bike handle bars. wonder if they were left overs from the days when HD made a dirt bike? Not saying they look bad just saying they look like they started life on a dirt bike.

    True, the curved h-bars represent “no year”…and they added their version of the cateye (guess they can do that, since they own/earned the look.
    Then then pulled 1951-1954 into the mix, because it looks like s/s script for those years emblem strip.
    All right…all right….I know what they’re doing…. they’re pulling all the best features from all the old models and changing the shapes to fit 5 gallon tanks (that look like the old 3.5)…. git outta’ he’yre.
    Best factory matte-black that’s come around lately, maybe… wha’ cha’ got? 🙂
