1.5” bars for an ‘18

I just traded in my ‘12 RG that had 16” F47 bars for an ‘18 special. I’m going crazy trying to decide on bars. I bought this with the plan on going with Carlini gangster apes but for some reason they haven’t made the 1.5” compatible with the hydraulic clutch. I really liked my F47 bars but I just want to do something other than meat hooks again. I don’t know if I should just suck it up and go with the 1.25 gangsters or hold off.. Does anyone know if Carlini has any plans on coming out with compatible 1.5 gangsters? I can’t be the only one that wants them on a road glide.. Also if anyone is still reading this, in my search I found FMB phatty blazed apes but can’t find any pictures of them on a road glide. Anyone happen to run those and care to share some pics?

If they’re 16s or bigger you mind posting pics?

Those pics don’t really help. How do you like the bars?

I prefer Carlini design quality/appearance over F47 & stayed with the 1.25” 16s Menace on my ‘18
