Default Stick bending

Need a stick bent. Sent a pm last week and have had no response. Just wondering if I'm doing something wrong?

Default More info on bending your stick

FYI

You need to send a full length uncut front stick.

If the stick is cut or has holes drilled in it for wires I cannot bend it.

I can bend the stock powder coated stick and not crack the powder coat.

There will be some small marks in the powder coat from the bending process.

If I bend a primered stick the primer will yield and will need to be re primed.

I cannot bend the rear stick because it is a smaller diameter and will not
work in my die.

I can change the angle of the bend but not the position of the bend.

Thanks for your interest

Mike

Mike bent my stick and it looks great and the service was excellent.
Trying to talk Mike into bending rear sticks for the Infinity grip so it won't hit the rear seat back. Stay tuned.

Default Happy Customer

Just got mine back today.
Of course I put it in right away. It will still need a little trimming at the top to clear the bottom of my panel. No suprise there.
Now...what kind of grip???
