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
I may contact them to see if they have the RD model. However, with 65mm reach they probably have no ramp at all. Sounds like a good dirt drop candidate if nothing else
37cm' s is way too narrow, though. 40mm is my limit.
