Fresh from the manufacturer. American made Tiller handlebars. An exact copy of originals except that I had the grips lengthened 2". The originals would fit a 4" grip fine, but putting a 6" coke bottle grip on never looked right. They do now! If you want something 100% accurate to the originals...

Looking for a set of handlebars for my 1911 "National" project.
Similar in style to #2 (the top three illustrations) shown below.
20" wide with a 3" drop
Appearance unimportant but must be useable.
Cheers @Rambler for the catalogue image.
Pretty clean and solid. No braces.
Should fit many late teens 1918-1922? Davis Sewing bikes.
I'm guessing someone repainted them intending to use them on a 1918-19 Sears Chief.
There is one extra hole in the top of the rear fender.
Not sure if that is for a rack bumper or rear light?
I am looking for parts for my original unrestored teens Chief. I need the Sturmey Archer shifter and rear 3 speed coaster hub. Also need rear fender and drop stand. Any help or direct me to someone who might would be very much appreciated. Thank you
