High, upright handlebars - where can I get them?

Does anyone know where I can find high upright handlebars? My wife and I want them so that she can sit completely upright while on the back of the tandem. Our friends (and fellow list-members) Pel have them, but I haven't been able to find them anywhere. Any ideas, preferably websites?

Ask your LBS. They have many sources for parts.

OR...

Try the Goodwill store / Salvation Army store in your area. Maybe you can find an old banana seat bike from the seventies with the BIG ol' high bars. (Or your LBS might have some "salvage" donor bikes.)

OR...
