Hi everyone,

I'm new here. Wanted to introduce myself, and share a website I just built. I'm interested in advertising on the site, but I read that you guys like to connect on the forum first, which is why I'm posting here.

I built https://cruiserhandlebars.com, an aftermarket handlebar comparison and visualization tool that lets you view a 3D model of various handlebars from various angles to help you visualize what it will look like on your bike. It works right in your browser on PC or mobile device. No plugins or downloads needed. You can even change the handlebar angle, rise, and wheel angle.

79118

I'd love to hear what you guys think. I'm definitely looking to make improvements as I go along. I know it's not perfect, but it's a start. If you have any questions, I'm happy to answer them too.

-Matt

That's awesome. Is it possible to be able to change the motorcycle?

That's actually pretty f'n cool. If you could figure out a way for people to upload their own bikes so they could see that I think that'd be super helpful.

I'm really glad you asked that. That's the most common question I get when I show people the site. I had originally wanted to have a motorcycle model that was sort of a "ghost" bike, that faded out into the distance, so the focus was on the handlebars. But I really didn't like any of the models that were created by the modelers I hired. So I went with this one.

It looks ok, the problem is you can't look at it and NOT think "Ok, that's a Sportster." So that kind of sucks if you don't have a Sportster because it's hard to visualize your bike. It also looks quite ridiculous on certain handlebars that are obviously not meant for the bike.

So yes, this is a feature I want to add, only I don't think I'm going to be able to create a model for literally every motorcycle model. It'll more be like 10 motorcycles that fit various "styles" of bikes. I'm hoping I can execute on that idea.
