Or are we missing each other over the definiton of "different"? Do these randonneur bars look "different" from the Taylors and/or Lauterwasers?

The Bruce Webber bars I have are Lauterwasser style.
I see more of a reason to do Lauterwasser style than Major Taylor style - the latter position should be relatively easy to obtain with modern track bars. Although maybe there is enough overlap between the current Moustache bars and the Lauterwasser to make both positions something obtainable today.
