I bought the Cobra Freeway Bars (01-1251) with my 02 Roadie. Chrome still look like new, welds held up pretty well and no rust whatsoever. Brackets are very sturdy and fits very well to frame. Dropped my bike at a gas station like a moron and not a scratch, bike was intact!
Installation is very easy, but whatever you buy, take your time and be sure to do it with a friend to avoid scratching front fender.
Not a big fan of Cobra’s product in general but they make great highway bars!
Hope this will help!
