I'm into the later stages of assembling my 1952 Square Four, and installed the handlebars which came with the bike. No problems there, but on fitting the front brake lever I find the cable is aimed right at the side of the alloy cowl holding the speedometer. It's also quite close, so the cable has to be routed with a sharp bend to run beneath the cowling - this introduces enough friction into the works to prevent the cable from springing back after brake application.
I suspect the root of this problem is incorrect bars - too short, too low and/or the wrong bend angle. Mine are 25" end-to-end in a straight line; pic attached. Happily Draganfly lists correct bars; unhappily they have no stock.
So, can anyone tell me, re. the original bars,
- overall length, and any other dimensions?
- a source for original-spec bars or something reasonably close?
