By 1930, firms like Bowden, Amal, AMAC, and Binks were making twistgrips that are very similar to the Docherty type fitted to British bikes throughout the 1930 to 1960s decades, so look out for one with any of those trademarks. Slightly earlier, but still around into the 1930s, there was the neat Amal scroll-action type, where the cable emerged parallel and close to the handlebars, but they are rather slow in use, needing more movement to achieve the same amount of throttle opening.
