Can someone possibly advise me regarding the original supplier for both grips on a MK 5 and what sort of pattern they were ,mine   are well past their best but I can see they are marked with the brand name Dare .

I would guess the original was Amal - you could spring for this:

I've replaced the badly corroded twist grip and the rubber hand grips on my Mk3 with this pair - much cheaper reproduction quality - but they work fine.

Hope this helps.
