Hi Guys,
i am in desperate search for a touring style bar, just say 2"-3"inch higher.
same angle as normal (seen from Top) bit more swept back is ok
and about 29" (74 cm) wide, but one could weld that on...

oh and the middle about 6"-3/8" apart (brampton)

I Holland unobtainable....
what motorcycle make would fit this description? so i can buy off the shelf?

i can NOT find one site doing up a good discription, only a make 'n type, (and sorry only into vinnies, so know shit about rest)

Norton?

thanx for your remarks.

Hi Vincent,
I have just checked both my Comet and Rapide for you.
Comet has Norton bars, a 2" raise, but only 6" in the centre
Rapide has AMC bars, a 1.5" raise, but only 6" in the centre

Try looking for trials bars, as they are usually much wider in the centre

Bonjour Vincent, I hope I can help. I have a handlebar from a US Triumph Bonneville. It is approx. 32 inches, 7/8 inch and would PROBABLY fit the top yoke of B Bramptons. Two bits of good news. 1/ it is in black chrome so it looks like original Vincent and 2/ they are yours for nothing !! (well, perhaps a pint !!). Can you wait until the 2018 French Rallye or will I post?
Best regards, Alan

Heard a story once about somebody who fitted ape hanger handlebars to an AJS in the 60's. They didn't tighten the clamp bolts enough and the bars swung forward. Now use your imagination.......
The person in question now owns a Vincent but is not a club member.
