Looking for Stock R/75 Bars (cash or trade my Magura S bars)

creaky old man needs to improve the ergos a bit on my R75/6, so i'd like to swap out my magura "S" bars for stockers. my bars are in perfect condition and looking for BMW 22mm stock bars in the same condition.

for those who've converted to the cafe' style, a perfect opportunity to get a little cash back.

can include in the swap the shorter clutch (recent) and brake (new last year) cables if this works out.

will buy stock bars and sell mine later, but not interested in selling my bars now and waiting for some nice stockers to come along some day. i gotta ride!

thx,
bobp in vt

Bars

I just put my '78 R100 back on the road with the high bars. I am looking for S bars, but not sure I want to ditch (or go through the pain of removing them right now as she is just back on the road after 6 years in boxes in my basement) the high bars yet. If you wish to sell your S bars please let me know. I am having a hard time finding a set of S bars. I want to lean over:)

Have a set of original bars off an 82 R100RT that I would swap for your bars. If interested let me know.

I believe what noman means is the "USA" bars.

You could also try Bar Backs?

Aren't "S" bars also known as Europa Bars?

I've got a set of high bars from an R75/6 with great condition (~ 2 year old) cables I'd swap straight across if you're interested.

As seen on the blue bike here. They're Magura, in excellent condition, still have the Magura sticker on them.
