Can someone identify this type of crash bars? Would they still be available?
Thanks in advance.

They were double loop bars

They were double loop bars offered by Flanders:

About the only way you'll find them is ebay, craigslist, etc.

I've got that style on my bike.
I think that it will protect the valve covers more than the other style in case you drop/lean the bike.
However, you have to remove them when doing valve adjustments.
Found them on Ebay.

Crash Bars

IMO
They have very limited ability to protect your bike and also take away from the beautiful design of this period
I would not pay even 15 dollars

Wouldnt the horn hit the ground first?

I think just a second horn for the other side and you wouldnt need crash bars at all.

This is said in a humourous tone of voice.... please don't take offence.

These are available from

These are available from established retailers. Vech's Bench Mark Works has them for $347, plus shipping, whatever that would cost from Mississippi. Uli's Motoradladen in Frankfurt has them for 148.7 euros (about $168), plus 44.5 euros for shipping to the US (about $50). No personal interest in either shop, but I've been a satisfied customer of both.
