    True story,

    One of my old riding buddies, Tommy Leila ( aka TL ) had a very nice Panhead. Chrome everything, custom paint, a real mid-70s beauty. One day at the local watering hole some dipshit backed his pickup on top of it. Made quite a mess, but the motor and trans were unhurt. The guy had good insurance and paid out a nice piece of coin to TL.

    Tommy took the money and rebuilt it better then before, gold leaf in the paint, tricked out frame and springer, the knat's ass if you will. Another bar, another town, and another dipshit. This one didn't realize there was a scooter in the parking spot and thought he was cool tearing into the spot way too fast. Pushed that bike into the wall and again, toast.

    This time TL was pissed. He decided the hell with it and went the rat bike route. As part of the build, he went to the garden shed, got the biggest axe he had and welded the head of it onto one tall ass sissy bar. The next dude who hit him was going to get some serious damage to his car or possibly to his person.

    No cop ever hassled him, which was good cause TL had been a tunnel rat in 'Nam and was not the most stable guy on the block. As far as I know that bar stayed on that bike for as long as TL was around.

    I think you will be fine with yours.

    I once lived next door to a family where one of the sons had a bike with a three pronged sissy bar. He got into a wreck with his sister on the back, one of the prongs got stuck under the back of her helmet, pierced her skull and killed her. Even before that I've always stayed away from sharp points and sharp edges. Maybe that practice is because I'm old, or maybe I'm old because of that practice. I have rolled around in the street with a tumbling motorcycle more than once.

    I've seen show bikes where everything was spear points and knife edge.
    Legal? Maybe it has to do with inspection sticker so maybe state by state.
    MOther - Yeah, nothing like sliding down the street on yer ass and having yer bike sliding next to you shooting sparks and throwing headlight all over (night time) and trying to move away from it as it chases you.
