Um... a photo of the bike back together with the 'Z's for the complete look?

Seriously, have you thought about rear sets to help stretch out a bit?

Rear sets with my 36` inseam leg!!? Are you trying to cripple me!  Wink When I rode Mikes CB750 (with rear sets) I felt my knees where up at my chin. Much to cramped for me. The old bars/seat combo were ok but unlike previous years where I could ride all day like that I now get cramped wrists and neck...not as flexible as I used to be  Undecided

cheers
Andy

Andy,

I was thinking more to place controls about where the passenger foot pegs are. One thing I have always loved about 70s bikes is that the passenger pegs are about the same height as the pilots, but 8 inches posterior. I am sure I am not alone in shifting back to the passenger pegs on long rides. I use them even on short rides on my old BMW. You could stretch out more if your controls were positioned at the passenger pegs I think. As the pegs are above the exhaust pipes, I think they are high enough as is. No need to feel like a jockey.

I am getting the feeling that the Z bars are not so popular  Wink

I figured a Dennis Hopper hat from Easy Rider was your next investment.

Hey, I bought a Captain America helmet right after watching the movie. I credit its fracturing in half when I crashed in 1973 for saving my noggin. Minor concussion was the only head injury I had. Not so sure the hat would be as much help though!

If I bought that hat Mike I would need to grow my hair long again and I think once was enough Wink
