Alt #1:  This is to widen the overall profile of the bars by 2 inches.  To be done at the base where they mount.


I want this done along the bottom of the bars where they fit to the risers.  The bars have a knurled section to grip under the risers, so these need to remain in place if at all possible on the finished bars.




Alt #2 (a & b):  

a:  Remove a 1 inch section to reduce hight.


b:  Rotate the grip area slightly forward by 2½ inches (expressed at the ends), so as to NOT have the grips 'swept' back so much.


I think a & b should be done by cutting somewhere centrally along the vertical section, removing 1 inch and rotating as needed (left grip clockwise, right grip counter-clockwise) and re-welding.

Adding 1 inch each side of clamp knurling to increase overall width by 2 inches

Removing 1 inch from either side to reduce overall hight by 1 inch


And rotate grips forward by 2½ inches (at ends) so as not to be swept back so much
