    Hi All, I'm wondering if i get some reduced reach bars and tilt them up a bit, how they will compare with my 10" apes. I'm finding myself with shoulder and neck ache whilst I ride with my apes, and I feel like if those bars were towards my body another 2" it would relax my shoulders quite a...

    I just bought FMB Hells Gate handlebars for my Bobber. I HAVE ABS. FMB recommends +2” cables. Are all cables made the same? How do I go about finding the correct ones that will fit my bike? Where do I find the plug and play electrical wiring extender so I don’t have to solder more wire in...

    Trying to decide between FMB Choppers 10" Blazed ape hangers or the Dean Speed Low Ball 1 1/4" bars. Differences I see are pullback: FMBs have 8" and Dean Speed has 3.5". Both are 1 1/4 tubing. FMB has bar-end bungs for mirrors, DS doesn't specify. FMB mentions blazed, DS doesn't. Any...

    Indian 16" Apes in great shape. Some rub mark wear from brake line but nothing serious. No scratches that I saw. They've been powder coated flat black to match dark horse tins. $180. Asking price is because they're already powdercoated to match a dark horse. Let me know if you have questions.

    Hey gang, I was hoping that somebody in here can help me out. I’m looking at installing some 14” Spike Bend Ape Hangers from FMB on my Bobber. I would like to know what I’ll need to extend the clutch and brake cables on the ABS model. Indian has a kit that is coming out, but won’t be...

    Hi everyone, The question I have is concerning upgrading my stock handlebars to 10" ape hanger handlebars.
