I'm having a Mandela Effect moment here.
Okay, I wasn't crazy, at least in this instance. Nitto made "LD" and "RD" versions of the B105, which had only 65mm reach. I wonder if these are what I have seen for sale in the past?

Scroll down about half-way to page 10: The catalogs of Japanese vintage bicycle

P.S. Universal Cycles's mfg number for the 37cm B105 is "B105-RD-370MM" -- if you're interested in a bar that narrow, you could contact them and see if it has the shorter reach: https://www.universalcycles.com/shop...s.php?id=10113
