Default Looking for apes

I know... another handlebar thread. I've been looking around for new bars. I like the burly narrow apes in 16". But I also want 1-1/4" diameter bars. Anyone seen something like this that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. I like the burlys cuz of the narrow bottom.

All the bars are 1 1/4 except where the controls and riser clamp mount

So anything less than 500 for some custom bars is a waste? I'm not saying cheap here, more like reasonable. Trying to keep it in the 250 area.

Those look good. The bottom bar is wider than what I'm looking for. But I've seen them on your bike and they fit well.

The bottom width doesn't go past the outside of my top tree. That's what I was looking for.

Look into BR Custom Bars. They will build you anything and their workmanship is outstanding. They were around $325ish for my 16" 1 1/4" bars. It was well worth the money. Only down part is that they have a lead time due to their bars being made to order, not stocked on a shelf.
