have the day off and was bored this a.m. so I made some risers and wrapped the grips and levers with some leather fringe stuff......the risers are just stacked washers and then a pvc cap to cover them..total rise is about 1 5/8'. I will paint them later today....the leather is from a bag of fringe stuff I got at Hobby Lobby a while back for my seat project...total cost was about $20. That includes 2 new grade 8 bolts, 30 washers, 2 pvc caps and the bag of leather.....so how does everything look? Ghetto? Gay? cheesy? so-so?

I like what you did with the leather ive been considering wrapping the bars on my bike with paracord but not sure how well it would actually work.

I heard that doing that helps add horsepower and increases your chances of getting laid. :clap for you:

Risers look cool man. Great job. I agree washers might look cool exposed also. Please post pics when you paint it.

Honest opinion, looks like a bucket full of ass...

I mean it in the nicest and non-douche way man, somethings were just never meant to be used on motorcycles. If you painted the pvc, and scuffed up the leather... maybe your on to something, but what I see looks like shit... To each their own though...;)

... Least your doing something...:)

Instead of washers, pick up a couple cheap 3/4 drive sockets. Use them upside down under the bars. Same effect, better looking.

Looks good w/ the washers exposed, and better with the other solution you came up with. Screw the haters, at least you're workin on it.
