Search on here for bar backs.
Also you can put the clip-ons above the top yoke by sliding the fork tubes up by 30mm or so.
I think there might also be a street fighter type set of bars and new top yoke with bar clamps on it to take conventional bars or your "Vincent straights".
Look under AC Schnitzer for those.

I had mine above the top yoke for years, no problem, only issue you might have is the brake lines may not reach.

Yeh mine are above the yoke too and needed new brake lines.
Best way to do that is a new banjo bolt for the master cyl which takes two banjo's, then only two new braided stainless lines, one down to each calliper - saves on some joints. They need to be about 4 inches longer than the originals.

Nice difference isn’t it? I did that last year outside a hotel in Germany whilst touring, along with lowering the foot pegs (thanks again to the guys that helped me out on here).
To be honest it’s F’ed the bike up from it’s sporty position and still isn’t really good enough for touring. YMMV as they say. Going to try out the new 1250RS when it comes out.
Anyway, the next step is a set of ‘Barbacks’ made by Randy in the USA, under the name of Rapid Dog and advertised on this board in the Trade section. Easy guy to trade with, although I never fitted mine and sold them on. Now age and a touch of arthritis makes me regret that sale!

I considerd drilling yoke to take clamps & putting vincent straight on.
