REPLICA FLANDERS RISERS with ALUMINUM BUSHINGS
If you're like me, you love the old
style Flanders risers. Nothing sets up a springer like these bones!
Problem is, anything more than drag bars and they are so floppy, you can't
ride the damm bike, at least I can't... Especially running ape hangers!!!
The first time I did this set-up, tried riding it anyway. Put on the
brakes and your arms flop forward 8" then stab the throttle and they flop
back again. Drove me nuts!! Hey, I've seen people riding that
way, not sure how?... My first fix was a handful of fender washers,
worked, but looked like shit! I finally replicated the rubber bushing in
aluminum. This is the only real fix for the flop. I paint the aluminum
bushings, flat black, makes them look like the original rubber. Most
people never notice they're not rubber. You can also polish or chrome
them, that looks really different...RR

PALADIN STERLING SILVER VALVE STEM CAP
These caps are custom cast in sterling
silver. Styled after my old Paladin back patch from the seventies. First,
I drill out the bottom and then press-fit a brass valve stem cap into the
base. Has o-ring seal. These tarnish to a really cool dark gray if you
don't keep them polished. Kind of a different, show type item for your
Harley chopper. Shown in the picture is turned aluminum stem cover also
