I always liked the stance those old trump drag bikes had. I mocked these up below, to get an idea what I wanted then called my local trump hoarder, $10 later got brand new drag bars, cut about an inch off the ends and installed them later today (pics to follow).. took her out and what a fuckin' difference!.. can jam those corners now..Happy New Year..

RedTail Leather... he sells on ebay. only seat I found with the kick up like that so you dont slide on to your back fender when your jammin' seat is fucking bulletproof. good guy.
