Check these guys if you need different bars.... http://www.flandersco.com/

Thanks, Pink.
I did look there.
They do have clubman bars.  I’ve tried them turned upside down, on another bike, and that might work for this, too.

Well done Scott..
I've started to do similar to my C-10, but never quite got around to it.
I think I even bought a set of the clamps and their somewhere (???) in my garage..

Could you please post what you used to do the search on Ebay?
Or, maybe a shortcut to what you purchased?

Setting here, bored.
   I may go back to the project..  :o

Ride safe, Ted

Hi Ted!

https://www.ebay.com/itm/KDX220R-RHK-7-8-Handlebar-Bar-Mounts-Risers-2-sets-CR-YZ-KX-RM/254495328690?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

Those are the eBay clamps I bought.
I thought it was important to use clamps I could attach to the triple with more than one bolt and a flat bottom surface, so they would be more stable and less likely to flex than just trying to anchor them with one big bolt.

Here are some very nice ones I would look at if I did it again:

I used ebay to find pictures of the underside of a C14 triple clamp so I could see what was under there and plan my project before I took mine apart.

If anyone wants to use Grom handlebars, they are super cheap brand new from Honda, but a couple days on backorder everywhere I looked.

Thanks Scott. That helped my memory.
I went back and checked.
This is what I bought.

The ones you bought look to be a lot better design.
When I got these, I was looking for something to experiment with. (ie; Cheap)
   Never got around to installing them...
    So, there "somewhere" in my garage.   (ie; Might be quicker to buy new than find them)..

I'll be in contact if I go back to the project.
Currently resurrecting a C-10 for my son..
  Good news is; It is now alive.
                       Working on the plastic.

Ride safe, Ted
