I wanted the bike to have an old school look, and we had different ideas on how to do that. The full set of Custom Brass accessories from Star that arrived didn’t wow me at first, but as the patina set in (I live near the beach, so that came quickly) it grew on me. I’m still not sold on the speedo visor though, and might switch it for the black one.
The Tall handlebars and the Springer Bobber Solo Seat changed the ergonomics in bad ways. Bartels and the other testers (all taller than me) like the new set-up, but it doesn’t work for me. The seat is too high, and at too flat of an angle, and the bars are simply too high and far away. I also find the seat to be too hard, with stiff springs and hard edges on the seat itself, so I use a gel pad from Saddlemen when I’m riding around town. I need to find either new bars, or a new seat, or both. I think softer springs would work, or maybe I could just clip the springs that are there.
