Putting clubman bars on my 76 GL1000

Post by Jakevachekart »



I have a 76 goldwing that's on its way to being a cafe bike, I can't get clearance for my clubman bars or anything else I try... any tips or points for risers or kickbacks that'll give me clearance to get the bars on? I'd post Pictures but i don't know how to from my phone
Thanks guys!

I suspect you have issues with false tank clearance. There are risers out there, but then you could just use a lower rise Superbike bar and skip the riser for about the same grip height. Let us know what you decide.
