I was thinking the same thing, for $480 it pays to just buy them instead of trying to do them yourself. My farmboy bars are working great

Buy 1" thread joints of your choice. Get some 7/8" ID w/ 3/8" wall from local metal yard.

Have machine shop thread the inside of your tubes for the endlinks.

Have machine shop cut you two sets of axle mounts. 3.5" diameter is the axle. Have them hang down at least 2-3 inches off the bottom of the axle.

Take a peice of 3x3 3/8" wall angle and weld two tabs on the bottom.

Other then drilling holes, that's all you need.

Wish I had pix of my setup on the computer but I don't
