Answer: 

There are two different types of Apex bars (standard and oversized) and which kind you need depends on what the rest of your setup requires.

For a custom scooter, generally, the parts you need are:

  • Deck
  • Fork
  • Bars
  • Headset
  • Clamp of some kind with associated compression mechanism that works with headset, fork, and bars
  • Wheels
  • Bearings
  • Bearing spacers
  • Axels
  • Wheel spacers (rear, unless brake has a carrier with built in spacers; some forks need wheel spacers as well)
  • Brake
  • Grip tape
  • Grips
