  • Technischer Überwachungsverein (Technical Inspection Association, or TüV) in Germany is an independent laboratory that tests the fatigue strength, manufacturing quality, and fitment for a wide range of consumer products, with special emphasis on automotive and motorcycle components and accessories. Biltwell handlebars and risers that have received TüV verification are among the strongest and most thoroughly well-tested motorcycle parts in the world.

    Form and Function

    Early chopper builders invented the 4-piece Z-bar to give their custom machines a cool look and a narrow profile. Our Zed bars continue this tradition, with a rugged 4130 chromoly twist. Available in 7/8- and 1-inch sizes, Zed bars are the narrowest models in our custom bar line. Their narrow width and comfortable backsweep make these bars perfect for compact stock bikes like H-D Sportsters and Yamaha XS650s, or on stripped-down bobbers and choppers. Since these bars have welded joints they are not a good choice for internal wiring.

    Whole new feel

    Came in on time, went on the bike easy, and they look and feel great. I would recommend these bad boys.

    Customer review

    I picked these bars up from Biltwell's showroom, installed them that evening. The narrower than stock profile made for a little trial and error while re-mounting the controls and mirror but once they were on I was hyped. I'd recommend something other than a stock mirror with these bars, maybe a bar-end mirror as the stock ones will give you a clear shot of your shoulder or hip. But that's the price you pay for a rad looking front-end.

    Got my bars in only 6 days! nicely made bars love the look of them on the bike. They feel great to ride with as we'll.
