Re: Bars

The handlebars are the 51-53 variety. Similar to to 49-50 bars, but have the reinforcement at the center the 49-50 bars lack.

Re: Bars

Perhaps a custom modification by adding the extra slot? Or a factory flub?

Re: Bars

I guess I am not sure what you are asking as I do not see anything odd in your bars. Every set of bars I have seen for that type grip sleeve is double slotted, both reinforced center and not. I have two pair of the '49-'50 type right now and they are both that way. So are lightweight bars which were the first to use that throttle set-up. I also have a pair of Flanders bars made that way so even the aftermarket followed H-D's lead. As far as I know if you had a bar with a worn slot you just turned the sleeve and plunger upside down and you have a new surface.

Robbie,
I was just going by the line drawing in the H-D parts books. They only show one slot. Artistic immunity I guess. :D
