A replica of a 1930s drop bar that's been hanging on display in Oscar Juner's old San Francisco shop for years. It has a unique flare shape. Has less hand room at the top area, than normal track bars. Named after the legendary Marshall "Major" Taylor.

Major Taylor was an American track cyclist who won the sprint world championships in 1899, becoming the first African American cycling world champion. He also set several world cycling records. Throughout his career Taylor had to fight racial prejudice, both on and off the velodrome.
