Change those star
grips and this would be perfect


I actually first installed some brand new black grips and no way they were just to petite for my hands, the Star grips add nearly a 1/2 inch to bar diameter which I need...I have big hands. I've run the Star track grips cut to size for at least 10 years. I built the bike to ride and to my taste. Like the looks of camo saddle as well, if I dont like how it rides I will change it to one of my old trailmasters.... If anyone knows of other meaty grips available on the market I'd be interested in checking them out..

Good options to check out.I like that the pnw grips do not have metal bits on the outer ends,..I like to ride without gloves when its not sweaty hot or freezing cold, what I like about the star grips is they are super thick grippy without having ridges and a plastic insert.

Dont change the star grips ... ride the f*ck outta that beast like I know you will. Thats a prime example of a sexy bike that will be treated as it should be... no doubt.

Hell yeah, thats the plan ! Honored to have bike posted here , Totally ! But built the bike to ride and prefer an unassuming look to it....My buddy is building his Ti Rootdown up a bit more blingy, I dont know if it will get posted here but I will try to post it in the agro thread when its built up.
