    Default Fat Bob tank with narrow glide front end, handlebar suggestions

    So I got a 1974 fxe with a big ol fat Bob tank and narrow glide front end. Honestly, I could rock the tank, if I could find the right bars, any suggestions? I tried these little swap meet bars, I really like the feeling of them but imo it looks goofy with the tank. So it's either go with a sporty tank, or find a set of bars that'll work with a wide tank and a narrow front end. Thanks!

    I think it looks fine. Be better if the bars were chrome tho.

    " I really like the feeling of them but imo it looks goofy with the tank" Worry about how it works and think about how it looks! If they feel good that matters more then the look.

    that is what my 75 fxe looked like when I bought it too my question is are they 5 gallons or 3.5 gallon tanks are 5's then maybe go to 3.5 they will give it the overall same look but front the front look slimmer, I kept my 5's and swapped to a wide glide front end and it looks good to me.

    5s are tough to make look good with anything but a stock garbage barge. 3.5s in the other hand, ain’t a better look, buckhorns and any narrow apish things.

    why not try a stock FX peanut tank,.. looks good, shows off the motor, slightly more fuel than a Sportster tank, I love them and at least here in England, 90+ of people use fatbobs so a change is better than a rest,.. here's mine ..
