Yeah there are plenty of 1" bar choices, now when it comes to grips, the 7/8" bar guys have it made. There arent many good grip choices for 1" unless you want billet skull and flame jobs, or some tacky 70's or 80's looking things.
Sure, I would and have. The Meriden Triumphs used 1" eyebolt rubber mounts with shims to bring it down to 7/8". All the Meriden R models had shimmed handlebars. I use a thickwall alloy motocross bar. Very solid, and all the stock controls fit. No worries, mate.
