Construction 1-inch O.D. x 0.120” wall seamless 4130 chromoly tubing. All bends are created with internal mandrels on a CNC bender to reduce flat spots in the radiuses, and all welded joints are precision mitered and TIG welded. For exact measurements, please click the Specifications icon in the photo album. Available in two styles: Smooth for aftermarket hand controls or custom applications, and Dimpled for stock Harley-Davidson switches and levers.
Fitment: At 12 inches from center of clamping area to center of the top bend, Biltwell Apes are tall without being outrageous. Thirty-five degrees of back sweep ensures your wrists remain comfortable on long rides. Depending on the height of the bars you’re replacing, longer brake lines, clutch and throttle cables and/or switch wiring might be required. If you’re not confident in your ability to change handlebars on your motorcycle, please consult a service professional.
These bars look great on: raked-out choppers with extended forks, custom bikes with stretched backbones, and practically any Big Twin you can imagine. We don’t recommend Apes for really short bikes or short riders—proportions and comfort may be compromised.
