That would look so much better without the banana bars and mudguards.

I don’t mind the mud down the legs n in the face but am a bit of a wuss during the winter months with cold wet sludge up my back and crotch lol.
They’ll be off as soon as it warms up a bit more.

The bars don’t suit the bike I know…but they were a “steal” to try the wider bars, I may get them re-sprayed if I get on with them. i was knick-named the silverback years ago so they may grow on me yet lol

The original Spesh bars had a bit of a rise, i think these are only fractionally more....maybe 10mm max but think its the colour that makes them look worse.

The yellow is a bit YELLOW!!! on such a drab grey frame lol.....i may try a full winter strip down service upgrade and re-paint it something just as in ya face lol
