Remember the film Easy Rider? Ya, neither do we. But there certainly were some cool handlebars on those motorcycles. The Wald 880 handlebar screams Fonda-Hopper-coolness. Slap this bar on your bike and you can grab a piece of American classic cinema for your own personal use and enjoyment. This chrome steel bar is 23.25 inches wide, features a 1-inch clamp area (25.4 mm), and rises 10.5 inches to truly spread your wings. Enjoy the open roads and forget your worries while Wald handlebars steer you straight and true. Banana seat and sissy bar not included.

Nice bars, and comfortable, but really only for bikes with a fixed gear, single speed or coaster brake. The parts where the grips go are too short at around 5 1/2 inches. I have an indexed 7-speed lever shifter that needed to be mounted, too but the handles just aren't long enough. If I put the lever shifter where it should go, on the right side, it sits right underneath the curved part (it's made to go under the bar) and the shift levers end up jammed into the brake lever, and can't be operated. Putting it further down the bars would defeat the purpose of the design, to have it close to my fingertips, and I'd have to reach down to change gears each time. I ended up mounting it upside-down on the left side. It's okay but the indicator is upside-down and very hard to see, and I don't know how it will fare in wet weather. Will rain now go inside it and corrode the parts? If the handle parts of the bars were 7 inches instead of 5 1/5 inches, it would work. I hope the maker will see this...
These are pretty small, just like the other reviews here have mentioned. It was tricky getting everything to fit since my bike has a front brake lever and a 3 speed shifter, so I trimmed down the grips, and then glued the grips on. Once I got them on everything worked out just as I had planned. If you are looking for tall wide handlebars these are not for you. The picture is of my 26 inch bike with these handlebars.
Just got the wald 880 hi-rise bars today and put them on my cruiser bike, I'm very happy with how comfortable they are. Im a big guy so i put a layed back seat post on my cruiser and then the bars and it streched out the feel of the whole bike, it put my hands on the bars in perfect position and kept me sitting up straight I would recomend these bars to anyone trying to get that perfect feeling without your hands in weird positions that alot of other bars put you in, also they look pretty cool gives that ape hanger look without being to high or to low the bend goes up high and then slopes back down towards you for that perfect grip, anyway I like these bars alot and at the price its defenitly worth it.
