FINALLY FOUND A SET...DAVE YOU WERE CORRECT, HUGE DIFFERENCE! ONLY PROBLEM IS THAT MY XLH HAS THE ORIGINAL EXAUST AND MAKES BAR INSTALLATION IMPOSSIBLE. OH WELL, LOOKS LIKE I'LL BE USING THEM ON MY '56 K INSTEAD.
i'm looking for a set of rear crash bars for my 1969 xlh. will the big twin ones (same year) fit my sporty frame? there is a 1967 xlh on ebay right now up for auction that has a set. there is a pic that shows a fairly close-up of the crash bars...it's hard to tell, but they really look long at the bottom. any suggestions where i could find a set?
