Sorry bout the back man.....dam that sucks....the back does everything for us human beings!!!!

Personally, I think the apes go well on a ratty style bike theme....but in this case, I dig you are actually doing this for functionality, and to be able to just plain ride without being in excruciating pain!....

good luck!, I hope it works out for you man!!!!!

Those apes are pretty cool. I'm still not sold on apes on a Warrior, but I understand the reason. I'm interested to see more, the Warrior is a unique bike and it can look awesome customized in many different ways. Maybe apes can look cool if the rest of the bike is done right.
