Warden, thanks for your input. I think that about sells me on the cobra fatty bars. I've seen the way some of the bars mount using some silly tabs that slide under things etc. I'm very glad to hear that they bolt solidly. Where did you get your leather covers? I'm looking for ones that work with the fatty bar and maybe have a pocket or something. Also, how's the showchrome product itself? I've seen complaints that for a company called SHOW-chrome, the quality of the product seems cheap. Iwas also a little concerned, if the fender bar is screwed into the front of the fender, would an impact not bend the whole thing? Not just the fender guard?
I can send pictures later tonight of the lowers. Bought them from a fellow member here.
As for the fender guard... it's more for show (IMHO
). I wouldn't rely on it to save much other than a small ding or such. In a crash, it's a goner. Otherwise, I like it and have no issues. However, others on this board have proof of failure at the weld joints. For me, it was a matter of cost - showchrome is much cheaper in cost than the Kury
or other higher quality fender rails.
