Custom Cafe Bars???

1977 is sold out of Cafe Bars and they are something Ive wanted for my ST for a while.

Does anyone have advice on the best specs for them?

I know i need 7/8 inch pipe, but how wide should the section where it drops down and what angle do you think i should set them back?

This is kind of a spur of the moment idea so if i sound like an idiot i apologize. But any help would be awesome!

I used threaded 7/8" steel, with 7/8" bolts, and long coupler nuts.

I tried to put a drop in it, but actually broke my vice bending it. Took a lot of heat (torch), and about a three foot piece of pipe on the end to bend it. If you've got good equipment, it's not too hard, cost me around 35 for materials, but I had a lot of steel left over.

Fuck the specs, figure out where you want your hands, and build it. As long as it's right for you, it's right.
