Default New handlebars for My SuperLow

I have my bike back. The handlebars look great. I am flat footed with street shoes without heels. This was an added bonus. I took it for a short ride. The handlebars feel comfortable and feels different than stock. I actually scraped my peg which never happened with the stock bars. I can't wait to go on a longer ride. Here are some pictures.

Thanks - I had them custom made. Local bike builder made them. I just completed a survey from J.D. Powers and Associates and I left negative feedback for HD on the stock handlebars and footpegs. Not sure it will make a difference but you never know.

Looks like your determination to get some bars that really fit you has paid off. Good for you!

My negative comment for the handlebars concerned the long/difficult reach for the controls. For the pegs was the poor design and the need to buy different pegs to be more comfortable and improve lean angle. I hope they actually call me for additional comments. I love my bike AFTER making numerous modifications for a better fit.

I think pegs, bars and the seat should be fit to the rider at time of purchase.

I totally agree. However, this is the smallest bike Harley has and I did have them adjust both the handlebars and pegs. On my second time out, my pant leg got suck on the peg and I almost dropped the bike. Changed to forward pegs. No issues. While the bars were adjusted, I still had to reach more than necessary. Seat I knew I would have to change due to my height.

I am not the only person with a SuperLow on this forum with these complaints. I wanted a Harley and if I had to do it again, I would still buy this bike. At the end of the day, the bike is a keeper. Great ride, balance, fast, and fun. I just tell myself just another hundred dollars get over it.
