    After two days they finally responded to my order. I guess I got spoiled from other vendors when they give very fast feedback on order status when I use PayPal. The fact that the money transfers quickly is supposed to get the order faster, or at least a status. I'll chaulk it up to coming off a long weekend. Stay tuned!

    Hill Country Customs did a fine job on my recent order. I ordered a set of handlebars and clamps. Hill Country had to order in the handlebars first then ship them cross country, Austin, Tx to Long Island, NY. I had everything in 6 days!

    Attached is the after photo, after I mounted the "Chubby Baby Apes " from Hill Country Customs. The before is my signature photo. The Chubbys give me a 8.5 in rise and more pull back than the stock Fatboy mini apes. Stock cables and wires just make it. Now I have an upright posture.

    Looking good, Fatboy. Those higher bars with the extra pull back have to be much better on the ol' back. And your arms not so high as to cut off circulation. That is really cool that you didn't have to replace any cables.

    A friend of mine told me about Hill Country a month ago, he has bought from them 2 times and was very pleased with them.
