That's another period want item! Like 29 smoothbores, finned covers, gas tank cap gauge.
They are bringing $100-$150 every time they show up on eBay.
No one makes them currently. I had a set from Beck-Arnley catalog in 1980. $14.99 along with an $19.99 Henry Abe bread box air cleaner.

Toast Racks are what we jokingly call them in the uk.
I have seen that there are new repro's available as i have stumbled on them during other searches recently but off the top of my head couldn't tell you where as personally they don't appeal to me so didn't make a mental log but the seller also sold chrome KZ crash bars so shouldn't be too hard to find.
If i see them again though i'll post a link..

I want to say that "oldkawman" had them at one point...

oldkawman.com/

Email him and ask.  I've bought some stuff from him over the years. Its surprising what he's got.

I see the site has been updated.  A bit pared down now.

Does the owner of that site post on this site?  I've always been curious.

slmjim tried a set back in the day.  Because the upper mounting tabs are about 2~3mm thick, and locate under the head nuts, the number of threads engaged by the head nut on the stud is reduced by the same amount.   Attempting to torque the first head nut to spec resulted in stripped threads  .  I never used them because of that.  Sold them at the Mid-Ohio swap meet many years ago.

Good Ridin'
