Turning all the way - handlebar grips
In the 1910s, many motorcyclists in Europe looked enviously at their American colleagues. They had something that became standard in the Old World not before the end of the Roaring Twenties: Grips on the handlebars that could be turned to regulate the throttle or throttle slider and the ignition timing. In 1903, a certain Mr. Hedström registered a patent for such a handle and transmission mechanism. The guys at Harley-Davidson recognized the advantage of these handles from the beginning, but instead of just copying them, they came up with their own mechanism. And Mr. Hedstrom's patent was bypassed.
Grips? Twist handles? What the h...?
The terms are already used in a rather motley manner. So that everyone can find everything, here are grip rubbers (we say grip sets, because our rubbers are often made of aluminum or post-war hard plastic) as well as all the mechanical innards with which the cables are moved back and forth. Directly for 1-inch handlebars or for the twist grips with 1-1/8 inch Ø of the early models.
