    Ok small Euro Bike guys....tell me what this is to





    I got these in a stash of parts from Team Obsolete, nobody knew what they were. they are under 30mm (like 23 or 26mm). I have been told they might be ducati but really anything goes.

    so what it is and what does it go to.

    by the way I know one is bent.

    As you already know, they are goose neck clip ons, used on lots of Italian and Spanish bikes in the sixties. Pretty small for anything over 200cc. I will look thru a couple of my ducati books tonight. The desmo singles sometimes used bars like that, but they would be much bigger.

    I have looked at a ton of bultaco and ducati pics and I haven't seen anything that uses these. Can someone post a pic of something that uses these.

    I think the more upright one is the bent one, because the tuck in seems to take an unnatural angle.

    They are from "BullaTron" a little known and rarely seen Texas Longhorn Transformer.

    OK, I did some research and they are off a 1963 Moto Coletti 50cc water cooled two stroke. Very rare.

    yea, I made that up.

    I have seen that style bar on Bultaco Metrallas, some guzzis and ducatis, plus several of those obscure Italian bikes that start with Moto.

    style is Metralla, but the neck is way too long. Not metralla.

    Was just looking at an old motorcycle quarterly (1970) and there was a bultaco Matador with a higher goose neck clip on, but not the same as the ones geeto shows.
