One of the employees at Latus Motors has 16" or 18" apes on his DX, so if all else fails you could call them and ask for Johnny Mac. I know he had to have some of the lines made custom to make it work.

Either this month or last month's issue of one of the many motorcycle magazines, maybe Robs Report, I dunno, but I know in the last month or so there was an article on someone who put on some apes and a springer front end, changed the headlite and all sorts of other mods to his V-rod. No matter what the opinion or general concensus of thumbs up or down concerning apes and or springer front ends on a v-rod,...well, they did end up with a smooth flowing V-rod.
And no, when I finally git mah "R" I ain't gonna extend the inverted 6 inches..

I told ya those were fighting words. :spank:

No problem though, I know it was all in good fun. Everyone knows that the NightRod is the reason why the V family is alive and kicking today.
