Russ , Kurt...yest they are pretty swept back. Look like the ones on our R69, but a tad beefier.
And the tank had some rusty scratches below them...I found out why when I tried to lift tank the other day and added to them The edges were so sharp it only took one little bump to further damage the paint...dangit!

I think they were so the bars cleared the Windjammer and will be coming off as well.
