How to install handlebars
Ever notice how most fine artists depict the devil? They draw this demon
from hell's wings as having sharp angles. This vision was not lost on
Demon's Cycles. Its new 1 1/4'-inch El Diablo handlebars sure remind us of
devil wings. No matter the imagery, we thought they have a real cool look, as
did Navy Seaman Mario Guerrero.
- The El Diablo handlebars owe their sinister look to their severe angles and gusset plates. They are
fabricated from 1 1/4-nch tubing and powder coated black.
2. Our starting point, a 2007 Dyna Street-Bob: the dash, gas tank, and hand controls already have been removed.
3. The new handlebars have oblong holes to run the control wiring in and out through.
4. air nozzle is used to blow the lead string through the bars,Then a length of
rope is attached to the string and pulled through
5. The rope was used to pull the controls wire harnesses through the bars.
6. The factory risers wer used to mount the new bars.
7. Because the bars are T inch in diameter at their center mounting position, a stock
clamp was used
8. The control switches were mounted to the bars and their harnesses fined over the top triple tree and routed into the frame.
9. The switch wiring exits the front of the switch housing and into the bars.
10. Once the switch houseing were in the place the front brake and clutch levers were attached to the bars
11. These stunning bars sure remind us of devil wings.
Mario had the boys at Tri County Motor Worx installed the 18-inch El Diablo bars on his 2007 Dyna Strcet-Bob
It had been riding it with regular l6-inch apes and wanted a different look. The El Diablo`s caught his eye,
The installation necessitated installing a longer clutch cable and run,ling the
handlebar controls` wiring inside the bars The job took the better part of a
day and the shop owner, Jim, said the job would have been shorter but we got in his way, go figure.
The handlebars are available directly
from Demon's Cycles for $199 The clutch cable came from Barnett Clutches
and Cables. The completed install has killer looks.
Mario said the bike rides as good as it looks.
So if you're thinking of adding a devilish
look to your ride give Demon's
Cycles a call
