The dandy horse, or draisienne, invented by Karl von Drais and the first vehicle with two wheels arranged in tandem, was controlled by a bar connected to the front steering mechanism and held by the riders’ two hands.

The first handlebars were solid bars of steel or wood, depending on the manufacturer. Curved, moustache-shaped, handlebars became popular in the 1880s.
