    Default Metalflake GRIPS

    Does anyone make GOOD flake grips. The kind that won't wear out in a year like those cheapass ones from avon. Does any body remember the grips that came on bicycles from the 70's? they NEVER wore out.

    +1 on that. The throttle side lasted a few weeks on mine before it split completely in half.

    And they're about twice the price they should be.......... the biltwell price range is spot on in my opinion

    I just put on the Hippy Killers and they look great! I hope that they will last the test of time. We shall see.

    I used these from Licks, had them for about a year, no problems at all. Actually gave me a pretty hard time getting them off. (That's what she said.)

    Does anyone make them in 7/8's aside from Hippy Killer? 40 bucks is a little too much just for a set of metal flake grips
