Overview: These handlebars are constructed with seamless CNC mandrel bent 0.120” wall 4130 chromoly tubes. Available smooth for custom and non H-D applications or dimpled to accept original equipment Harley-Davidson hand controls.

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.

go ape! (without looking like a kook)

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. 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.

Black ED: The black finish on Biltwell handlebars and risers is called Black Electrostatic Discharge or BED, and is applied the same way chrome plate is applied to raw materials. Like chrome plating, powdercoating and standard paint finishes, BED requires periodic care to maintain its luster. Soapy water and a soft cloth will remove surface dirt from BED, and common automotive waxes and polishes work great to protect the finish.

A Few Words on Knurling: We donít knurl our bars because doing so reduces the surface area where the handlebar makes contact with the risers, thereby compromising clamping power. Stock and aftermarket steel risers commonly found on cruisers and custom big twins have a material density 4 times greater than aluminum. This density doesn't let knurling bite into the riser material, which in turn compromises clamping strength.

Pretty great bars for a pretty great price. They give you just the right amount of rise without making you look like a dick.
