I was gifted a set of zombie performance bars 7/8 10" rise at the grip ends from a fellow cc member
Awesome I know. However they didn't mesh with my feel if you know what I mean.
So instead of selling these and essentially taking money from said fellow cc member I'm gonna give them away

So if you have a build that these would just top off the look you're going for how would chop cult feel if the person I give these bars to would also post up something they have that they would give to another cc member because you have it and they need it. And so on and so on.

Be honest with the needing.

if that would be cool then I'd be willing to send these bars to you if you post something up you'd be willing to give up.

I'm not asking for any money or trade just a good Ol fashioned pay it forward.

Stupid idea? If so, someone gets a free set of bars.

Did this before and it worked for a while.

It's a pretty good idea, everyone's got parts lying around they'll never use.

dammit.. guess I should have "searched"
oh well. what's worse bringing back a dead thread from a few years ago or starting fresh?
either way.. I have some free bars to send to someone that needs them and is willing to post up and send someone else something they may need.
(no selling of free goods)

Very cool of you. I am in need of some 7/8s bars for my CB project I'm building for the Ol lady but I don't think these would fit in right. I'll dig through my junk and see if I have anything to add to this though.

Better to start new, atleast in this case, that one died and fresh start should be better.

people turning it into a pick and choose trading thread is what kills it, had 2 goes at it before. Hope it works out as its one of the best things that can happen on a forum. I got a a/c cleaner for $5 shipping from someone here 5 years ago and im still running the thing.

I just want to give someone free bars for their build and in turn have that person send something to someone..
I'm even willing to pay the shipping.
no asking.. if you see something someone has chime in and be prepared to send something out as well that's all.

I figured this would get more traction in the japanese build thread given the size of this bar.
so read the above and if you need a set of bars PM me and I'll send them to you.. but you have to post up something to send out yourself.

I like the idea of this thread. Id personally love those bars for my cb. But before I go asking, lemme rummage around to see what I have to offer

I also have an odometer I'm not using for someone who needs it. None of these parts have been used

The last thread format was kinda like; spitting into a strong wind... especially with the occasional, just take it and runaways.

Might be a good idea to get complete information from people, and mutual tracking #'s between the 3rd and 2nd person before the 1st ships out. Then when a 4th wants the 3rd persons item... it repeats again with info exchange and tracking #'s.

I dunno... good luck keeping this afloat, although being on the Japanese/Asian side :) it should get bumped pretty often and stay legit, as we certainly can be some part hounds.

On the main page it seemed like there was no interest. Should be better here.

I have a set of pods, the tapered steel mesh type with polished end pieces, and good boots to with them, had them on 32mm CV carbs. A set of Sportster/dyna mufflers and heat sheilds, and a pair of exhaust clamps I'm willing to send out. Don't need bars though.

Does anyone out there have a front brake/master cylinder by chance?

Trying to get my GS650 going and the front brakes are screwed. Caliper and all seems good, but the master cylinder is stuck. Have tried getting it free for 3 days so far...no go.
Also looking for some kind of tank for it. Will pay for tank or master cylinder, but would like to keep the thread going and help others as well.

Ill dig around and see what i have laying around as well! This is my first bike and build but i have plenty of junk laying around
