Default Street Bob Riser adaptor for regular riser.

I am not sure if any of you Street Bob owners out there have seen this or not, but I am going to throw it in the mix.

Once again custom chrome has ripped off a smaller company.

Who is it this time? I am just wondering!

I now it wasn't loner industries. I sent them an email a few months back asking if the could do something like this (even sent him a drawing of a similar setup) and the guy there said that it wasn't possible do to the angle of the Street Bob setup and what is be needed to get the riser to sit at an angle that the flats on the tree sit at. Maybe if it is Loner, I guess they took my idea and ran with it, not wanting to give credit. I'm not saying they did or could blame them if they did, after all I didn't patent it, I just gave it to them.

Those look awful IMO. Looks like two sets of risers stacked on top of each other. Replacing the top tree and going with traditional risers would look best.

Yea, I agree with you on that, but there are some people out there that might be interested and didn't know about theses or couldn't afford to do the tree conversion. So I thought I would make it a bit more public that there is another option out there!

I know loner is working on this and west coast t bars already is building a set up for the integrated risers. I know I've seen another small company doing these too.

This solution is an answer to a question no one should have asked. It takes a few minutes to swap out the top part of the tree if you have the bike/front end properly supported.
