i just got a killer deal on a set of tomaselli clubman bars, wondering if anyone here has em on their bike?

some people are like slinkies, basically useless but they still make me smile when i push them down the stairs

I have them on my Commando. Makes it possible to
position the master cylinder around the instrument
housing so that the brake lever is still usable.
The couple different non-adjustables I tried didn't
work so well in that regard.

The big allen heads that allow for adjustment have
set screws, but they will still loosen up after a few
months. I suspect it's heat cycle induced (warm days,
cold nights).

I believe they can be used in 2 configurations, one
with 2 parts per side and one with 3 parts per side.
Having the extra little adjustment arm gives another
degree of freedom in positioning.

Just out of curiousity...How much did you get them for?
Here in Toronto, Canada, they go for about $150 bucks new...
I love them... Even better is the dual adjustable tomaselli clip-ons..

this shop sells the tomasselli adjustable clubman on ebay fairly regularly. they sell for about $100. vintage cosmo (215) 672-9100:

there's a different product on ebay right now:

if they're in supply, a search for "adjustable clubman" on ebay will usually find them.

i find the tommaselli adjustable bars look real nice, but they're quite a stretch forward.

these bars are far superior to the non adjustable clubmans they replaced, i love being able to tailor grip positions like this. they look good too. i paid 65 bucks for the bars on e-bay. seller got em and wrecked the bike before he could mount em. they were still in the sealed plastic bag.

but then again, the long stretch forward does have its advantages, since it helps the brake master cylinder to clear the gauges.

the fixed clubman bars didn't work on my bike cause the brake master cylinder hit the gauges.
