Engineered to deliver comfortable ergonomics and classic chopper style, Zed and his little brother Maynard are our take on Z-bars, a timeless chopper classic. We build every Biltwell bar with 4130 Chromoly for strength, then electroplate them in satin black or polished chrome for looks that last.
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 and Maynard bars continue this tradition, with a rugged 4130 Chromoly twist. Available in 7/8- and 1-inch sizes, Zed and his little brother Maynard 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 XLs and Yamaha XS650s, or on stripped-down bobbers and choppers. One-inch O.D. Zed and Maynard bars are available to smooth for aftermarket hand controls, or dimpled/slotted to fit stock H-D hand controls. NOTE: because burrs can be present inside their welded joints, please DO NOT pull hand control wiring inside this model.
