I don't care what people say about ShortShots, they look so right on the black Sportsters.

Dan are you looking for those items? I still have the ones from my 08. Never parted with them after I traded it in. PM me if you are interested.

Hey nickl011

Did you have to buy new cables when you put those handlebars on, or were the stock ones long enough?

No, I had done my research on here and on biltwell's website and you DO NOT need new cables. The only thing I had to do was remove the p-clamp that holds the brake line to the triple tree and slightly straighten the hard part of the brake line. I love these bars!
