HD bars will hit the tank, especially if your tank is lifted.
The Biltwells fit depending on the model as well as a couple of other bars.
I'm not big into the broom handle bar thing so I use Nightrod bars on a lot of my builds.
I can get you a good deal on the Biltwells if you want.

The Biltwell Tracker bars are nice. They have a small sweep to them. They come in black too, just make sure you get the correct ones. They come in dimpled or non-dimpled. I believe you need the dimpled ones for a Harley but don't quote me on that.

Taller risers will help the bar clear the tank. Handlebars aren't exactly rocket science, and luckily drag bars are cheap. Buy one you want and test fit it (before you pull all the controls and everything off). If you need more rise or pullback, measure what you want, and buy risers accordingly.

I used Santee drag bars on my build. They had a slight pull back and were dirt cheap ($20ish). Grips and the pitch you have the bars set to can have an effect on hitting the tank as well.
