Hi Tommy,

I can only repeat what others have said before, excellent workmanship and attention to detail. Thanks for the pics and details.

Did the handle bars come with the fork or can they be bought somewhere?
I am looking for one like that for my XT550 the original is about 2.5cm to low for me and i don't feel like putting some modern Renthal style bars on it.

Thanks

Leon

Hi Leon

I have made the bar riser from solid bar , the clamps are standard XT500 with the centre drilled out.
Maybe the picture will explain better, the bolt is an allen bolt / cap head turned down.










Cheers

Hi Tommy,

I saw you made risers but I think if I get handle bars like that I do not need to get risers. the handlebars of my XT 550 are pretty low. I am looking at both options, risers or higher handlebars. here is a look at my XT. paintjob is the next thing but i'll wait untill the weather improves. I'll try to take better pics one of these days as well.



estetically i think higher handlebars might be the way to go. I do not really need to be totally oem but i do not want to go overboard on the new materials and designs.

Hi Tommy

Just a question.

Are you a professional or it's just for fun?

The handlebars are i think from the xt600 range 43F or you could just buy some renthals like these,
