    Safety Bars for 41 UH.

    Still trying locate OEM front and rear guards. No luck at Eustis or New Smyrna again this year. Almost to the point of trying the VTwin repops. Anybody have any luck with those? The 51-0899 look like they are the early squared off 36-38 version.

    Wasn't Carl Olsen producing an early bar?

    Yes he is, but as you said, it is the early squared off bar, 36-40. I need the Type 2 Ver 2 bar with the curved lower bends and the longer bottom tabs.

    A few years ago, maybe 10 or 12, I used a repro front bar on a late 47 framed bike with no issues but sent the rear back as it wasn't close to fitting properly.

    Rear's are on ebay all the time. Front is pricey.

    I have a Style 2 Version 1 (short tabs) I believe to be OEM that I will give to your postage. It is VERY rough, and will need a lot of work to straighten. It has been chromed in the past. I'm not an expert but believe it to be OEM based upon how the lower tabs are formed. Send me a PM if you are interested and I'll try to take a couple of photos for you. Again, it is very rough, but its cheap too. lol.

    Late '54 to '57 are usually chromed. Straightleg Pan and second version Knuckle are the same.
