    Hi, 

    While I am shopping bars/risers these days, I saw a brand called Zodiac. Many local retailers have them instock, the price is surprisingly cheaper than many others. 

    https://www.mcas.com.au/shop/item/zodiac-drag-bar-1-14-inch-for-1-14-risers---chrome?utm_source=Criteo&utm_medium=CPC&utm_campaign=retargeting

    Anyone knows about this brand? and where they were made? 

    I googled, their headquarters is in Netherland? 

    PS: another question, is there a compatibility issue that I must use bar and riser from same brand?

    thx

    They are okay.... I have bought Zodiac in the past with no problems.

    Just do not expect $100 quality every time when you pay $50 for the same item from Zodiac. At least they are not chit.

    I looked at em for fork tubes, but went OEM.
    As long as the sizes match you should be ok.

    Been around for a coons age, like they used to be in a parts book (as thick as Harley manual) ya got for zilch called Custom Chrome or something similar. Quality was ok , just definately made in China, but cheaper than other brand names. had a lot of their shit on my Fatboy. We can always do with more stuff specially for the bike stuff.

    Pretty sure t bars I had on my softball were zodiac. Quality wasn't too bad though internal wiring was a pita... Well for one side anyway

    Now have wild 1 apes and they were much better and still reasonably priced

    Recently used a set of Zodiac indicator relocation clamps for the front forks. They look ok, nothing to write home about, were reasonably priced and do the job. I guess I got them cause they were available and could be delivered quickly.
    Not sure I'd buy anything of a critical nature like a wheel rim from them.
    Also bought a pair of shoe strings with chrome plated ends that fit my Dunlop Volleys perfectly, Oh boy! "Was I the envy of the clubroom at the Tennis afternoon tea party yesterday" even scored a root.

    Dunlop volleys, ahh brings back memories, of rigging,  in my Redwing boots, as weren't allowed to wear Dunlop Vollys, and never got a root at work, which was lucky cause all the crew were guys. Musta been the Redwings.

    Been going for over 30 plus years, bought indicators in the UK in 1990.

    I’ve used their indicators, typical pot metal made in Taiwan, chrome will pit n peel after a year of harsh weather, cheap but ok made, don’t over tighten things or they’ll break easy but no complaints really.. is what it is.

    I think Charlie Karling , who used to race a Supercharged 114Cubic Inch Nitro Burning Sporty, he built. He raced in Europe & USA. he still builds some fast motors and bike's ( Harleys ). been around a while.
