Well ,here we go , My Norvil mock up has had the bar clamps ground off and polished out and it looks ok , problem being my back using clip ons,
so i find a pair of raised clip ons from Dave Degans at Dresda , strip the front end down to fit them only to find they foul the clocks due to the bar "overhang", i would have to turn the clocks in towards each other fully to fit , not a good look, so i see on Barleycorn engineering they have a set of "up swept" clip ons that i may try , has any one found a set of bars that may do the job ? , The bars i bought are no longer listed on Dresda or Chris Knight motorcycles who they were originally ordered through, so i have a set of raised clip ons made from aircraft grade polished stainless going cheap ,
hope to here some good news ,
Cheers Colin

I have these that I would swap with you for the shiny stainless ones
But I really would be doing you because these need a re chrome
I don't have a set of clock holders to try,but I assume they would clear??

Moto Guzzi swan neck bars are nice. I can't remember the fork diameter on the Guzzis but I think they might run 35mm forks like our Nortons.

Can the ones you already have not be modified to fit?
It's only metal at the end of the day

Have a set of the 3" riser clip ons from Disco Volante, they are Tarozzi branded, the fork tube fit is good, but the conical riser portion is a poor interference fit and does not maintain its position, I had to tap a lock screw to resolve this, and the casting tends to crack when tightening the bolt to the recommended torque.

I now have a set of Tomasselli's with a 1" rise, much better quality, but they don't come properly sized for the commando fork tube and I had to machine them to size.

I was going to mention Guzzi's as a friend has a few and most have "riser" type clip-ons that give quite a comfortable riding position.
Not sure what the Guzzi fork tube diameters are though.

If you are planning on using a Production Racer style fairing you are very limited on your clip on options.
