Custom Chrome Europe

Santee Bonanza Bagger Bars for "Batwings"

One of the oldest names in the aftermarket, the Santee brand has been owned by Custom Chrome since the company bought out the rights to the Californian manufacturer's frames, exhausts and related parts in the 1980s and added it to its in-house brand portfolio.
Among those "related parts", Santee was always a major player in the handlebar sector and now, some 40 years later, Custom Chrome Europe is 'keeping the flame alive' with these new Santee "Bonanza" style touring handlebars created for 2014-up touring models - Twin Cam and M-8 - with TÜV approval. 

Especially designed as a match for Harley's traditional "Batwing" fairings, such as famously seen on "Electra Glide" and "Street Glide" models, to support the demands of steering heavyweight late model Harley Tourers and Baggers with precision and reliability, these bars are manufactured from precision-bent 1 1/4" steel tubing.

"The excellent quality grants longevity and superb fit - all bars are prepared for TBW (Throttle by Wire) 1'' handlebar controls, in a 1'' tube diameter with a 1" knurled clamping section. For ease of installation and internal wire routing, all bars are prepared with drawing wires."
Variations of these new Santee Bonanza Bagger Bars include black powder-coated or chrome finish; available heights are 13 or 16" (330 mm or 406 mm). All versions share a width of 38.38'' (975 mm) but differ in pullback: 8.1'' (205 mm) for the 13'' high bar and 8.86'' (225 mm) for the higher 16'' Bonanza Bagger Bar.
