Not very helpful I know, I wish you luck. I've been searching for the same thing for over 2 years now. I did find a NOS front crash bar in the States a while back

For what they're ikely to cost you, getting a marine fabrication firm to make some up in stainless may be an option. (Thinking of another post currently running, that'll be type 316).

finding the dimensions would be the problem ....knowing the radius of the bend etc.......if someone had a set would be easy to copy

Give Barry Bligh of Overlander Equipment in Warnambool Aust a bell .
Pretty sure he has original dimensions, which of course he will not give you but will make a set if he has the info.
HE has been known to bend custom pipes from a photo.
However question the price and you will never see them.
HE has been stung by too many British bike riders

Here’s a set of BSA Original rear crash bars I found on eBay here in US back in 2011 or 12, paid a heavy price for them and haven’t seen any listed since. Hope  you will find a set!

Don't think they were terribly useful, either - wouldn't help you much in an accident. Bit like all those mirrors on scooters .......

Hi there from Cork,
I took off a set of (front) A10 crashbars from a friend's bike last week,.
It has all the fittings.
Let me know by PM if you are interested,  you wont have to break your piggy bank to get it, only postage.

they save the bike if it falls over from major cosmetic  damage came in useful when I had my harley  electraglide and the crash bars made it easier to get up right as it doent land on the ground flat but doubt I could lift it up at  my age now .
