    This is from Thors site on a Helios drop bar conversion http://www.thorusa.com/dahon/technic...conversion.htm

    It looks like you will just need the drop bars.

    measure the bar clamp area. It should be 25.4mm.
    If it is, then buy a 25.4mm clamp handlebar and you're set.
    I think nitto is about the only maker that even offers that size anymore.
    or buy the helios conversion piece to use 26mm bars.

    If the clamp area is 26mm, then it should be easier to find drop bars in that size.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)
