just bought my 2003 1300vtx retro- love everything about it, except the handlebars. would really like to install a set of stock bars from a honda 1100 shadow. does anyone know anything about this change- mainly concerned about the effect on cables, lines, etc. would appreciate any help you can give. :?

You don't say what kind of changes you're looking to get out of the bars. There are many different varities of bars you can go for as well as handlebar risers to bring them up and back. Plenty of folks on this site have changed bars, added risers, etc. Tell us what you want to gain and somebody here will have the answer, and welcome! 8)

i guess i am looking to narrow the reach up a bit and bring the bars back towards me some. i stand about 5'9" on my tip toes, and am kind of a fat little italian boy, so the stock VTX bars are just a bit to wide for my arms. previous to buying the VTX i had been seriously looking at a 1100 shadow, and fell in love with the stock bars.
