A Vintage Moment

I would like to know when aand how the "reverse and upturned" handlebar revolution evolved.

Last year I bought for my Dad the bike he rode when he was a teenager, a 1937 Planet Jr, a local Toronto builder competing against the giants at CCM.

It killed me to see that the first thing he did was get a wrench out of the tool box and IMMEDIATELY turn up the bars. When I gasped he simply replied "This was the way everyone rode in '37, and this is the way I ride !!!"
