I was talking with a friend about weird aftermarket parts from back in the day and these levers came up with the dramatic finger notches in them. Anyone remember who made them? Thanks

For sure sure it was O’neal. I was a support rider during these years.

O’neal was a great sponsor to have as they had a huge catalog and were still a distributor for lots of other brands. You could get bars, grips, levers, backgrounds, numbers, Maxima Oil, FMF, Yokohama tires, Sunstar, Moto Air Filters...everything you needed to moto back then.

Delandlers were the first shorty plastic and then aluminum levers from goldbelt and then Sunline and endorsed by DeCoster and Hannah hence the name DeHandlers. If you got WD40 on the plastic ones they would break instantly

Multiple companies made/sold them. I still have a few laying around somewhere...silver, black, and neon green with some paint splatter look.

And they came in colors too. I had yellow ones on my ‘78 RM80. Super trick at the time. lol
