But, will they be in 22m or 7/8?
Mine are 7/8, which is .875in or 22.225 mm.. so they are slightly larger than the BMW grips which are .866in or 22mm.
I have yet to determine what I want to do with this information. Ha.
I think I might just shave .1125mm from the bars.. unless this is dangerous to the integrity of the bars. If so, I might have some Clubmans on ebay soon.
I use standard 7/8 bars on my bikes. Take a wooden dowel, duct tape a piece of 120 grit sandpaper to it, put in drill, lap the controls inside. Perfect fit on 7/8 bars, and still fits the 22mm bars. Limited availability and styles of 22mm bars, and quad the price of 7/8.
22mm = .866 7/8 = .875
There is a difference of .009 inches, the controls are oversized by .006 - .007 inches (I measured). Therefore you only need to remove .002 - .003 inches of material from the controls.
My 1977 R 100/7
This bike started as a S replica until I hit a deer coming home from the paint shop with less than 30 miles on the paint. After that it became a Cafe'
It's a "Lo-rider" I believe.
wow, a real cafe racer and a real poser side by side.
Very Nice !
I like the black lower legs
That is really, really nice. Is it a custom tank? Ali? or a chromed standard tank ?
This isn't mine, but one that I think was on ebay a while back.
Just goes to show you need to scroll down the threads before posting.

Greetings from Germany
Did you make that Cafe seat yourself?
A friend of mine made the seat.
That is the best looking top cover I have ever seen when eliminating the airbox! Smooth is an understatement! Lots of nice touches on that one.
This is one of the nicest I've seen - Anyone know anything about it? I think may have started life as a /2? Mabye Russian?
