Nash Midget Gimp Hangers

Life's a bitch...   Thank God there's Harleys...

A Bobber Needs Apes

Even before we actually started our project we already knew that our bobber was gonna have apes. No doubt. Not that we've got anything against Z-bars, straight bars, beach bars, clip-ons or any other handle bar design. It's just that our bobber was going to be fitted with apes.

However, we also wanted to create a slim and narrow bobber. And we found out that many ape hanger designs do not fit the slim and narrow image that we were after.

Nash Motorcycle Company to the Rescue!

When we first saw the Nash Midget Gimp Hangers, it was love at first sight. Although we like the regular Nash Gimp Hangers a lot, their Midget Gimps have the narrow design that fits our dreams of a slim and narrow bobber.

Nash Motorcycle Company from Vancouver, Washington, USA produce 12", 14", 16", 18", and 20" Midget Gimps featuring a 9.5" base which is perfect for narrow glide and springer front ends.

We wish to thank Taber Nash, Jenna, Marlin and Josh for helping us out. These people are just who they are. And their designs are way cool !!!

The Nash Midget Gimp Hangers are made in the USA and measure 31" grip to grip and 5" pullback. They are available in chrome, black, copper plating and raw finish.
