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.

THANKS ALL
k56

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?

You can go to Ebay.com and in the search box type in Item number: 280236839970. You'll see what I'm talking about...

Big twin, and Sportster rear safety bars are very different. Drag out your parts books for both bikes and compare the pictures. It's very obvious when looking at both.
