Roadster bars for the Cutdown project

A while back I recieved a piece of steel tube that I had been waiting for since plans where made at the Wauseon AMCA meet this summer. Tom Faber at Fabercycle.com (check out his web page) have made a great looking roadster handlebar for my cutdown project, whow. Tom is a super skilled craftsman, his handlebars for twenties to fourties Harleys, Hellings&Stellings or the ever popular Flanders are made as exact copies of the originals.
My bars are made to look like bars seen in early photos of cutdowns with 1" shorter grips.

These narrow bars look great together with the slim JDH fueltank, or more correct a peashooter tank with valve pockets this is and the messinger racer saddle. Damned I need to get that Pan done to spend more time working on the cutdown.

Sometimes I wonder why I keep a comfortable sofa in my workshop, I`ve never got time to sit in it anyway. Tonight Sara, a dog I`m taking care of these days kept it warm, thanks Sara!
