Request for euro bar pictures and also where can I purchase them?

Ok so I am thinking about changing up the bars on my R90. I have the US High bars as of right now. I was wondering where the best place is to purchase European Handlebars or something that looks like the Euro bars for my R90?

Also feel free to post up some pictures of airheads with the euro bars if you have them.

Pictures of my bike for reference.

Strangely enough I have Euro bars fitted but want some US ones. I think the cost of postage would be prohibitive for a swap though. Motobins are pretty cheap if you are stuck.

euro bars. Not the best photograph but you can see the height of the bars ok.

I've spent part of the day putting Euro-S bars on my /5. I recently got a Hannigan fairing and found that the "high and wide" USA bars caused the fairing top to bark my knuckles. The lower S-bar was needed.

I got these Fehling bars from Hucky's Spare Parts http://bmwhucky.com/:

32 71 2 303 042 F handlebar European S chrome (Fehling) /6 - 100S $ 75.00

Not to detour your thread, Imyamen (I'm interested in a set of lower bars too), but what windshield is on your bike in the photo and how does it work for you?

Man I think it is a interstate cycle brand but I am not certain. I found it in a vintage cycle shop in Arkansas on a bike trip. It is a super simple set up the windshield has 2 bars attached to it. You put these two fasteners on the handlebars that the bars on the windshield slide into and you just tighten a little bolt and it holds them in place.

If only you lived in the US. I have about 3 sets of US bars I could GIVE you. My bikes just keep coming with them.
I ordered the euro bars from motobins, they're great, almost want them to be an inch wider, though.

So you should probably live here and I should probably live there.

Those look nice. How do they differ from the "S" bars?
