Title: Rear tip over bars from Murphs
Post by: Murph on February 12, 2018, 09:26:36 pm

Hey gang

 Pardon the merchants post here but this is pretty much in the consumers court .   While I have front bars in stock, we are currently out of rear bars. The best number of units to make due to  material cost is 50 units.  Not sure the markets out there...what say ye?

I like mine that I got from Murphs'.   Both front and rear bars saved my '01 C-10 when FedEx knocked it over in the office parking lot.


IF thinking about it THEN buy them ELSE you will regret it.

my two cents...

Sounds like a blast from the past.  1980 I was at IU taking a fortran class.  Keypunch machines and punch cards.  Back in the day when a computer took a whole room!  Thanks for the memories!  Not sure I'm buying tipover bars......but I should. :-[

Morning all..

So far the numbers are not working for a batch of rear bars . I have 30 sets or so of front bars in inventory.

Just to let you guys that don't yet have them know...

On my C10, I only had the front bars.
As a personal sacrifice to my friends at COG, I tested them a number of times, different locations, and so on   :-[.
My left bag had a small scuff on the front lower corner that you could only see if you looked very closely, otherwise, no damage whatsoever.

Go for the fronts and forget about the rears.

I would recommend making a batch...you won't sell out in a day but you will sell them all...there are still enough Connies out there that need them...those that don't have a set haven't tipped over.......YET...

Perhaps he can front you the money with the understanding that he only gets paid when they sell. You get to provide the bars and he gets the small business experience.  :rotflmao:

Sorry Odie but most folks can't let money sit on shelves as a service to others. Either the math works or it doesn't. Murph was just testing the waters to make sure the math works and clearly it doesn't.

Alot of folks don't always leave the bags on and the bars dont look good that way . Not sure why anyone would take the bags off but to each their own .

As a rule I take the saddlebags off when I'm not going on a trip. The bike looks much more impressive with the bags off than with them on IMO....
The rear bars do make it difficult to put the plastic covers on - I ran a small bolt & nut through the rubber antler bumper to stop the bouncing and stress the free play creates on the antlers, so the plastic covers take some time to put back on with my arrangement.

I have been looking for instructions for a set of these front tip over bars a friend gave me.  Does anyone have a copy, a link or point me to the correct thread?
