MILWAUKEE, Wis. - Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Accessories has a host of new offerings, a lineup that includes new handlebars, 110th anniversary flag kits, a dress-up piece for Sportsters and an expansion of the company’s custom seat program to include new Sportster saddles.

The Motor Co.’s new Chizeled handlebar offers the look of a class Z bar, with hands-up, mini-ape ergos and the narrow width of a drag bar. The 1 in. bars feature cast, seamless 90-degree bends for style and strength. The cast elbow also eliminates sharp internal bends. Removable Bar & Shield plugs allow for easier internal wiring, the company reports.

The handlebars have a 8.3 in. of rise, 4.3 in. of pull-back and are 25.75 in. wide. The bars can be installed on stock risers, and fits many 2007-later Sportster models as well as 2006-later Street Bob models. All models require separate purchase of additional components such as clutch and/or throttle cables and brake lines.

For Harley-Davidson’s 110th anniversary, the company offers up the new 110th anniversary flag and mast kits that can be installed on Tour-Paks, saddlebags or sissy bars. The flags are made with nylon for durability and feature the 110th Anniversary logo. One  kit has a sissy bar mount, while the other has a mount that fits Tour-Pak luggage carriers and fiberglass saddlebags, and also can be installed on cars and trucks. The flags are designed for parade use only and will not withstand high-speed use, the company says. (continued on next page)
