Wider Handlebar for RE Thunderbird bike
« on: October 11, 2012, 12:17:02 PM »
Hi, I am planning to change handlebar for my thunderbird, the current one ie. the stock handlebar is fine but I am looking for wider handling setup. I am looking something like following :

The above is taken from vardenchi modified RE.

However, I am not looking for something very wide or very tall, infact should be shorter in elevation than stock TE handle bars.  So, can I swap it with some other bike's handlebar which will give me the desired holding position or I may need to go for something custom ?

Read in some forums that we can use RE Std 350 straight handlebars on the TB and the riding position would be good. I dont know whether it will give you the desired wide feel, but i like to experiment when i visit my mechanic next time.



Or else, try this website. They are very responsive and have heard very good reviews.

I have already taken leap and ordered wider handlebar , but I dint get the wider I wanted, the one I received is 10 cm shorter, he promised to get me wider one, I will talk to him today..

Below I am attaching image I just clicked for you, handling is now superb, it really gives you feeling of better control over bike. Just to tell, its Yamaha RD350 handlebar in thunderbird.
