New Bars, Risers, Fork Caps.

So today I installed my new Drag Handle bars. Along with Risers, and adjustable fork caps.
Was a bit of a pain but not to hard.

Tell us about the bike next to the Rebel. Kick start and front drum brakes says it's an old bike (I couldn't use the dual rear spring shocks because your Rebel uses them for nostalgia).

Looks good! I got mini z bars on mine and love it over the stock bars. I will have to take a picture of mine when I get the time. What brand and where did you purchase those fork caps? Did you notice a difference after the install?

Hi,
Where did you get the accessories from? The H2C risers and drag bar look great! Think the fork adjusters will be a worthwhile upgrade, have you noticed and improvement in the ride?

These are the fork caps. I have not been able to ride it since I did the install. This is the first time I am home since then so I am hoping to do some riding today and tomorrow.

The Risers are the H2C ones and I ordered them from HRPmotors.com.
The Bars are TC Bros bars. You can get them on amazon or ebay.
