Throttle Assembly

I'm using a set of ape hangers on my 45" flathead bobber.

The universal throttle assembly I have is a POS that I picked up from an antique parts supplier.

Is there a good throttle assembly out there that will would work well ?

Hi Dalaymond,

The H-D mid 70's throttle is not so bad, simple, 1"...

There used to be a great throttle reverse kit made by Anderson, who no longer is in business.
However I just saw a well used one on eBay. If I remember correctly cyclewarehouse had it.

Re: Throttle Assembly

When I built the tall bars for my 101 Scout Chopper I took a set of early 70's Sportster (they are the cheapest) bars, and cut off the end and welded it to the bars I was using. That got me Stock HD parts, Internal Throttle, and it worked real well.

Re: Throttle Assembly

The -74 throttle assemblies work well on bobbers/customs. They were used up until about 1981. Most of the aftermarket companies offer a replacement part, but I've seen some that don't open the throttle all the way.
