I love anything to do with Harley Davidson and have two beautiful children and a beautiful partner. In my spare time i like building websites and love anything to do with the internet.


  1. I installed (with help from my wife) 14in apes on my 2008 Harley Davidson Electra Glide Classic in about 5 1/2 to 6 hours. I had to install longer front brake lines and a longer clutch cable along with making all of the wires longer. Getting the wires through the bars was a PAIN but they went through. I took my time to make sure the wires and the twist grip sensor didn't get damaged. To me it was a lot of fun and I saved $500 by not having the dealership do it for me.

  2. Needed to adjust my bars and was mad as a hornet thinking I had to take fairing off. Saved me a lot of time by mentioning that little tid bit about the back two bolts. Best ape hanger install video I've seen by far

  3. Do y'all sell the bars with cables all ready run with clips and New clutch and brake line. If so is there a website.

  4. Just ordered your 14's for an flhtcu. I'm trying to gauge how these will fit for me. How tall are you? (I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've ever asked another guy how tall he is.) Thanks
