Looking for 18" apes similar to the Factory 47's

Factory 47's don't offer the 18" Malo bars in gloss black, only chrome. SO I have to either a). buy the chrome Factory 47's and have them painted which I don's want to do or b). find a similar 18' gloss black set of bars. Does anyone have 18" gloss black apes similar to the Factory 47's? I currently have 16" Wild Ones. Just not tall enough.

Give the guys over at LA Choppers a call.

They have a great selection and can steer you in the right direction.

Down below is their link for their handlebars.

I had a set of their 13" Twin Peak apes and they were great.

I know they have some very tall apes over there.

I’m running 16” JMC apes and they are killer.

I’m sure they have 18” & 20” apes as well

These 19" apes look killer

+1 on that. Just got mine delivered yesterday. I had him make me some 18's with 5" pullback. I also am switching from 16" Wild1 chubbys. That being said, if u want taller, u better ask jim for 20's. Apparently he measures differently. They go up to almost 19", but the grip height is still about 16". I'm a little disappointed about that, but they look awesome and the price was great!

I just liked dealing with Joe at Vindicta. He was quick to offer to build the bars anyway I wanted. Height and pull back. He also is busy and would rather answer your questions on the phone then the back and forth emails. I’m not going to say one bar is better then another. I honestly think they are all the same. It’s just your preference.

Nut tugger!!!lmao.
