Tapered O/S 1 1/8" 4130 Chromoly Bars

Californian accessory and helmet specialist Biltwell is well known for its contemporary custom styling - from café to tracker, scrambler to Bobber, Biltwell's take on style is cutting edge, and its grasp on the new opportunities that dealers can find is second to none.

Seen here, Biltwell 1 1/8" oversize and tapered handlebars are a common sight on lightweight dirt bikes and many European and Japanese sport bikes. Thanks to some progressive thinking by modern Big Twin customizers, this technology has migrated to high-performance Harleys.
Unfortunately, the aluminum material used to make tapered bars is not ideal for Big Twin bar construction. Also, dirt bike handlebars are 7/8" on the ends, so you have to shim stock controls. Biltwell's solution of tapered and butted 4130 chromoly bars solve all these problems. 

"We employ advanced tube tapering and CNC bending technologies to ensure every Biltwell OS bar is stronger than stock and straight as an arrow," says CEO Bill Bryant. "CNC slotting and notching lets you install stock H-D hand controls and throttle modules easily—no dangerous shims or drilling required."
Biltwell 4130 chromoly bars are available in black or chrome in a wide range of styles such as Tracker standard, mid and high, and in popular 8, 10, 12 and 14" XL and XL Pullback Tyson bars. A wide range of heavy duty risers is also available, including popular Murdock oversize straight and pullback risers in black or chrome, plus hard-to-find oversize clamps for mounting stock and select aftermarket H-D speedo assemblies.
