Default Looking for tall t-bars / drag bars

Hey All,

I'm looking for some help and advice in my search for tall t-bars / drag bars.

I've been looking for t-bars with a rise of 10inches and up but they're pretty much non existant. There are tons out there for Harleys with 3.5inch center to centre measurements but none for Victory with 4.875inch c-t-c.

I have a MY12 Vegas 8 Ball with stock bars and have riden one with high ball apes. I like the riding position but prefer something more agressive and the thing is the 8 Ball with apes is also my brother's ride so don't want to get the same as him.

So if anyone's has seen these type of handlebars for Victory bikes or knows anything that would help, I'd be keen to hear about it.

Have you talked to any of the custom guys like Witchdoctors or HMD about doing a one off?

I've scanned the witchdoctors website but didn't see any off the shelf bars. Didn't know they do custom jobs.

Did some research with fabricators like BR customs cycles but I'm from Australia and our dollar has tanked so much it has the same value as a peso...

Thanks for suggesting HMD. Looks like they only have apes at the moment but will enquire with them

Arlen Ness makes modular drag bars with a ten inch rise (I think it's 10). They're not typical looking like West Coast t bars, or wild one, but the riding position is similar. Also, there are the LA choppers club bars that get RAVE reviews. And I saw on their Facebook page that they were making them for Victory now.

youre in Australia you wont get a better product than Burleigh Bars,
I got Dave to make up the 'roller bars' on my Vegas, custom made to sit in the same position as stock but a bit easier on the wrists.
He does lots of different styles in whatever thickness you like,
I prefer the chunky 1 3/4" ones myself.

MB They are great looking bars, I am thinking seriously about them....
However for these custom bars I think I will have to ride to the Gold Coast to get a fitting.
Bit hard to tell the ergonomics and the overall fit with any precision, unless you ride to their shop, I think.
A bit like getting measured up for tailored clothing...
