I have a 2008 xl 1200 custom. Looking to change stock bars to a baby ape or z bar. Looking for a quality bar, any suggestions and pictures appreciated. TY

Look up Zombie Performance. I just got a pair from there and they are really good quality.

I Also have couple zombie performance bars. Have served me well. With bars you can Throw a stick and find some. Might be some on this forum for sale. Go the re-use route and Craigslist Facebook marketplace or eBay. Or a local swap. Or biltwell tc bros lowbrow and lots of other small but excellent fabricators out there. Wish I knew more of them. where are you located ?

When I wanted to change bars I went to the dealer parts counter. Told the guy I wanted a used bar, so he took me to the back room and let me root through the pile of takeoffs. I picked out 3 that I wanted to try, he told me to bring back the ones I don't want. $20 out the door, and I got a perfect bar for me.

c1skout - That's a great idea - and a good reason to be friendly with the HD dealer...
