    From this angle to me they look like they might be "flat track"Bars positioned pretty low,check the Flanders Website for"flat tracks"bars 
    If you have the name of this movie we probably would have a better idea of what the bars might be..

    Thanks for the info Guys. I managed to make my own based on the photos of the Beach and flat tracker bars. Not as far back as the beach bars.
    Cheers Glenn

    That was a Ok movie … name escapes me at the moment … Dianne Lane when she was quite young was in it … couple of good Fight scenes and some tasty old bikes as well .

    This Bike in the middle is running a drum brake front, it is probably the stock bars, it's stripped down to get weight off.

    Hey Glen just a quick one...
    I looked again at your pic and the bike in the middle has the split bar risers clamps ,standard on FL from 1960 to 1979.
    So I would definitely say they are split bar handlebars from an early model sportster (K model or Ironhead up to 1973 as they use the same set up...)
     And thanks for the idea,I might pinch it from you for a future project...(lol).

    I watched the movie last night (streets of fire) and the bars look like old split panhead/ knuckle style.

    Glenn W … you beat me to it , Streets of Fire is correct name of movie , Michael Pare was main actor … actor on middle bike is actually William Dafoe … Movie was back in 1984 … Bit of Movie trivia for you all .
