New ape hangers!

The original bars Dad had on the bike had 8" of rise, with 4" risers underneath.  Now I have a set of bars with 12" of rise, along with 6" risers underneath.  It's just a *little* tall...

I haven't settled on final angle.  I tried out different angles and found this was the furthest forward I could go and still be comfortable, but I think it looks a little wonky.  I'll likely rotate them back a bit before calling it good.  I have to figure out this before I order my brake lines, though.

Note the location of the mirror.  If it's mounted above the bar, it's too far over my head to be useful.  Hanging here, though, it gives me a good view behind me.
