Saw a beauty of a Triumph over on BikeExif yesterday with pretty much the exact handlebars I'm looking for.  A guy there pointed me in the direction of Lowbrow Customs where they sell Emgo repro Triumph bars with a "western" bend, but they're out of stock.  Here's what they look like -



hmm, they look like...handlebars.  Anyway, they're out of stock - I'm on notification for when they're back in, but anyone know where I can look in the meantime?  Found a few sets in the UK that'll cost me my shirt in shipping, but not a lot on eBay otherwise.  Of if anyone knows of something similar that could absolutely work too.

just did a search on a few sites, they are "sold out" on any that carry them. Do any of the UK sites have the measurements? Bikemaster may make the same bend called something different and you can search by width, height, pullback etc.

Yeah Mike, that's where I'm at too.  Not in a huge hurry, so hopefully Lowbrow will get them back soon.

You're looking for Flanders handlebars.  Much better quality bars than the EMGO and the bars EMGO is copying anyway.

Thanks for the link Irk - just had a look but will need a more thorough dig to see if they have the bar I want.  They may be a little out of my budget too, damn.

I've run Emgo on 4 bikes and all were just fine. I have them on the GL currently. There are better bars out there but I can't afford them.

Close maybe Mike but no cigar - the triumph repro bars are much wider, around 33"

If you have the widths (overall and center before rise), rise and pull back you can search for bars in 7/8" with the same or very close dimensions and probably find some
