Hi Alan,
Thanks for that.

Yes, I agree it's probably likely that BSA parts could also match. Just need that bit of info linking the two. Trawling the internet I haven't yet found out for sure.

I'm buoyed by the fact Draganfly have repaired their machine. Who knows they may come up trumps in a few months!!

Lee, have you found a set? My Square 4 was a USA export and when I got it it had the “big bars” which I assume are original and are the type you seek. I’ve replaced them for something I am more comfortable with. I will try and dig out a photo, and you can let me know if you are interested. Paul

Hi Paul,
They may well be what I am looking for! Any idea on part number?
Yes I am interested. Let me know what you would like for them. Can you do private messages on here? I assume you can.
Regards

Thanks Roger!
Here is a photo of what the correct bars look like.

Those North American high bars were Uggg crappy.I had them on my 53 VHA and my bud had them on his SQ4 .Dan in the USA had them on his Cyclone and removed them.lower bars are much better.My 53 now has the UK version installed.
Maybe some like the high bars , not me..lol

Hello Lee, PM sent, I don’t know the part number as there is nothing stamped on them. They are not as high rise as the ones on the cyclone in the pic above.

Hi Ian,
Yes, they are probably not to everyone's taste. But for historical accuracy I would like to put the original ones on.

Funny you should mention Dan. Happens to be the same bike!
