Have you tried the new Drafts feature yet? I just lost a long message today and learned my lesson. It is a good idea to save a draft of any long post you are writing. You can then just keep writing and keep saving a draft, knowing you have a backup if there is a glitch. The draft is automatically deleted when you post the message.

Hi Everyone,
What came with my project was the top of the handlebar stem but both sides of the handlebars had been cut off and I only got the remains of the right-hand side. In the photo I have put the remaining piece in place on the stem but I don't know how much of the tube may be missing on that side because I don't know the overall width of the handlebars.

Could someone please measure the total width and then I can make a new handlebar.

Many Thanks
Marcus

Hello Marcus

I have measured my '25 CW bars which were original though badly bent. The straightening process was tricky and they are still a little that way due to losing my nerve at the time.

Left and right sections of the handlebars are 420mm each from outer edge to the centre support. The fuel/throttle on right and on the left the advance lever mount hole (visible on your sample) or pipe are 420mm from the center mount corresponding edge. The left twin lever mount and right single lever mount has two bolts mounted in the bars. Starting from the left outer edge the first is 110mm from the edge and the inner bolt is 73mm further along.The right side is the same measurements.

Trust this helps

Hi Frank,

Thank you very much for taking these measurements and the photo.

The length on each side of 420mm, is that the length of the tube around the bend or is the distance from the center to the outside, in other words if you put a rule across from one side to the other is it 840mm plus the width of the fitting in the middle.

Cheers

Mine are 420 from edge of casting to end of bar round the forward edge on each side. Only about 770 overaall width in a direct line. 1923 TS
