I am thinking of getting a new Street Bob, but don't like the
ape hangers. How difficult would it be to change to Superglide
bars? Also, anyone know where I could get black chrome pipes,
stock quiet? I seen them some years ago as standard equipment.
Changing handlebars is easy - you just have to account for the different lengths of control cables. You might need shorter cables. I was able to change out the bars on my '03 FXD without changing cables.
Take a look at these mufflers - available in black, chrome or silver. I haven't tried them - just looked at them. They claim the Black Hole series is quiet.
