Re: High Western Handlebars

Those North American high bars were Uggg crappy.I had them on my 53 VHA and my bud had them on his SQ4 .Dan in the USA had them on his Cyclone and removed them.lower bars are much better.My 53 now has the UK version installed.
Maybe some like the high bars , not me..lol

Maybe Ariel supplied both at the time???

Re: 20" Front Tyres

Hey Chris..I just don't like the feel of the tire. The K70 3.25x19 tires are great but the Avon 3.00 x20 just doesn't give me confidence .
