Default Apes on a Vegas...?

was thinking mine would look good with some about shoulder level. Does anyone know of this being done? I'm thinking with the pullback of the stock bars, I might be able to get away without adding longer cables/wires. I would love a set of the Highball bars, but I'm sure they only come in black. Any comments, suggestions?

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land

And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Kidwell, was wondering how much the conversion cost. for new bars(measurement) and lines. How tall you are so I can get a rough estimate on where those bars would hit me?

Hey bro, the bars came with the bike. Back a couple months ago before i bought the bike I was looking at how much it would cost to convert and for a good set of bars and cables about 500, I'm 5'8 by the way
