    I'm new here, so I'm sure this has been covered. I want to put 16"(or should I go 18") apes on my 08 Street Bob.
    Just wanting to know what is involved and cost etc...

    Thanks

    The height of the bars depends greatly on how tall you are. With apes like that you will definitely need new throttle cables, cluch cable, wiring extension and new front brake line. There is a company out in Texas that can put together a complete package of just what you need. If it's ok I will post a link to them.

    That may very well be true!

    Their phone number is 512-264-7333

    They have a Ebay store also under hcccycles

    If you could post a link that would be great. I think I would rather buy it all at once (If I can afford it). I'm 6'2 and have ridden a couple of bikes with 16"s. they felt fine. What is a Fly-By setup???

    Electronic throttle instead of cables.

    Here are a few pics. One with stock bars and other with 16" apes. I'm 6'4" and find them very comfortable.
