In looking over a couple of recent threads I noticed some guys wondering what a Hard Bar is and what it looks like.

It's the best damn shift knob I've ever used, and the same one used in Racing Vettes(like, can you say C5R?).

L.A.P.D., one of our vendors carries them, as I'm sure your favorite vendor does :)

Here's the website: www.hardbar.net/ Just click on the box to the left of your screen marked "Shifter Knob."

:cheers:

That does look REALLY cool.

I am limiting myself from a bunch of knobs because of the shift pattern. I don't need it but I keep thinking if my wife drives it (which she hasn't ever done) then she would need the pattern.

I saw that harleyB had taken the stock shift pattern plate and mounted it on the console.... maybe you could do the same for your wife CD?

IceSabre,

Thanks for the suggestion. I like keeping the interior simple and that just seems like it is going to fall off or get in the way.

I think my wife is going to just have to live with my selection. Afterall, the shift pattern is not that complex. ;)

A hardbar????

Isn't that what you wake up with each morning?!?!?!?!

Oh wait, that only applies to us young guys. I'm sure that you older folks can still remember what it used to be like. :D

Zippy made a post awhile back saying that if you change out your shift knob, you can take the shift pattern that you popped off the stock knob and snap it onto the cigarette lighter.

It works. After installing my Kirban I did just that so if anyone drives my car (not likely) I can just flip up the ashtray cover and viola, there it is.

Pat :)

I have Harley's set up just a tad shorter. IMHO, Cut down Kirban and Hardbar are a AWESOME combo. Fubu/Les:)
My hardbar is polished, so Les thought.

Steve -- I almost went with one of these (heck, I still CAN, I supose), but wasn't sure how comfortable to the hand it would be. Is the shape of that really comfortable? It looks similar to the Mallett (is that the one I'm thinking of?) shifter knob shape, so maybe there's some merit to its shape...

Also, how do they stay secure? Do they just screw on? If so, how can you be sure that the logo will line up straight? (I think it's a really good-looking knob -- I just don't want to be messing with any set screws or anything like that.

Thanks for the info!
