I thought you may want to know I have officially taken on the role of Ducati Sport Classic/Paul Smart Converti-Bar Guinea Pig.
I ordered and received the full system from them yesterday. I have always been told that these folks are first rate both in product design, build quality, and customer service. The Converti-Bar experience is everything so far I have heard and read. If they work as well as they appear they will, these guys make a product and run a company the way you would expect, but rarely experience in life. Everything from the customer servcie to the timely delivery and quality of instructions and packaging is very well thought out.
I should have them on the bike by Monday night after work. I expect the position of the grips will be moved back somewhere around 1 1/2" to 2" closer to the rider (they are multi adjustable though) and I'll likely raise them about 1" higher than the clip-ons when they're slid up to the base of the top tree.
I'll keep everyone tuned...-Capt
