>for Models 1911-1973, Inner-Ø 1-1/8” / 1-1/8”, to fit OEM Spirals
>1942-1948 Grip Sets
After the USA entered the Second World War in 1941, the WPB ("War Production Board") was to allocate resources wisely, so that an effective armaments production could be established and maintained. Saving rubber was one of those tasks, which is why these hard plastic grips were part of the factory equipment from 1942-1946 and were optional in 1947-1948. However, they also fit models down to 1935 as well as up to 1973.

Wrecking Crew Tramp I Handlebars
The shape of these handlebars is inspired by the legendary Tramp I, a Knucklehead drag bike built by S&S founder George Smith in the early Fifties. They feature distinctive, pulled-down tube ends. This feature helps so much when crouching down on the tanks during your quest for top speed. The selection includes handlebars for stock spiral grips thru 1948 and handlebers which feature straight 1” tubing on both ends so they will accept 1974-up grips and clamp type throttle controls.
The Cyclery Screwdrivers for Handlebar End Plugs
This is the tool you always wished to have when it’s time to loosen those frozen handlebar end screws. We all know that even the largest screwdriver in the average toolbox simply doesn’t do the job, because the slots in the end plugs are way too big and you will inevitably ruin them in no time. The Cyclery offers you the right stuff: hand forged and finished from tool steel with a substantial ironwood handle. The blade tip is hollow ground and 3/16” thick so it bites into the screw slot for a tight, non-slip fit. The version with 1/2” wide tip is intended for handlebars with hard plastic grips installed. Rubber grips can use the larger 5/8” type screwdriver. The shank has a 1/2” square section, which allows for support with an open end wrench. Classy tools for classic bikes.
Faber Cycle Stubby Speedster Handlebars
Tom Faber’s less wide custom version of the #13 Flanders handlebars with extra short spirals to have a very sporting and overall compact look. Use your shortened stock rubber grips or fabric tape on the spiral ends.
For Hillclimb races the riders preferred a forwarded seating position, so they bent or tilted their handlebars accordingly. A handlebar rise of about 4” was also popular. These Custom Springer handlebars sport such a forward tilted and raised design, which provides a comfortable riding position especially for taller riders.
Chicago Motorcycle Supply Kicker Pedals
Back in the Forties and Fifties, Chicago Motorcycle Supply was one of the leading manufacturers of aftermarket accessories for American motorcycles. These kicker pedals by Faber Cycle are still made on the original moulds and make for that perfect "period piece". The kicker shaft is made from steel and cad plated.
