R100 Handlebar Options?

Ive got an 84 R100 standard. The handlebars are rather tall. I would say they are "T" Bars. They measure close to 10.5"s from the bottom of the bar to a point where a line would be drawn between the tops of the handles. They are 27" wide. Im looking for lower bars but not as low as "S" bars(had them on a R100S). I would like to find something in the middle between the "S" and "T" that is at least 27"s wide or even a bit wider . Any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks

Find some take offs from a Ducati Monster. Wide, but maybe too low, but worth a look.
I ran bars off a K1 on my R80ST for a while. Now they are on my K100RS, I like the additional leverage.

find a pair of the european bars from the 70's. bmw had the higher bars on bikes sold in the states and lower ones on euro models.

the bob's bmw catalogue has a good listing and descriptions of all the various available bars.

Blake has the right idea. I've a set of Euro bars on my /5 and like them alot. You can ofter find them on Ebay, I got mine from Airhead Salvage in Texas, Recycle often has them used also. New even with shipping Motobins in England is often the best bet. YOu can google any of these places and get their websites and emails. JT

Sometimes atv bars are an alternative. A little taller than dirt bike bars and are usually pretty cheap.

Thanks for the input everyone. Ive decided to give these bars a try from Capital Cycle USA 1970-78, & all R65 (5 1/2" x 27 1/2") they sent me a pic of them and they look about right.
