Monster 1200 cafe-racer handlebars?

Hello fine folks. I'm trying to swap the stock handlebars on my 1200 to cafe racer style bars. However, it seems the forks are too low to swap to clip on style bars. What other options do I have, short of replacing the forks that are taller?

I guess I could go with downward angling regular handlebars but I've not seen any that would replicate the exact look of that cafe racer style. Admittedly, I've not looked at an enormous sample size either :X

b9009b, you're too kind. I'm no expert at all!

Izzy: Maybe my input is a bit too "European". Changing the handlebars requires registration from Gov. authorities.

For the Monster I did choose parts from LSL in Germany because of quality and the papers you get. They have multiple kinds of handlebar clamps for all needs: LSL Motorradtechnik GmbH

Also their head lights and mounting brackets are pretty cool (and legal here).
Thanks from youngR and b9009b

Update! I got some adapter clamps from Woodcraft that they just finished producing. Supposedly they just finished as I called to inquire if such a thing existed. It basically bolts right on the oem triple clamp and converts to clip on style bars. Definitely cheaper than getting clip ins and a new top triple clamp. I'll post pics when installed! Gotta strip the tank and a few other things to complete the build but it'll be exciting! Thanks for the info everyone.
