Stock for now. Plan on 10" narrow glide apes this winter. Waiting for the riding season to end before I tear it apart.

I had to check "other." I took off the drags and put something similiar to the 2004 Sportster custom bars on my 2000. Looking for something else though...

Took the drag bars off over a year ago and love the wide-glide bars w/2" pullback risers.

Yup....since I've had carpal surjury on one wrist, and the other ain't so good either....the position of these bars are the best for me....although I may try some Z-bars...should look cool on the ole Iron....prolly need 4" risers for the low Z's I want

I voted drag bars, and they are, but they are also the stock bars on the custom. I didnt see the stock bars on the poll till after I voted.

Edit: I changed your vote to stock for you. Gazza
