It is a good looking bike! Can't help identify parts though. Looks like a LOT of custom machining.

mr. catus is probably right on, custom.
the riser are machined aluminum blocks and the grips are machined brass rod. $$$$$$ build, better break into the piggy bank to see if you can afford it.
i have the machinery but time is also a BIG factor, which i do not have, more expensive than the materials.

The brass pegs and grips, controls start here. https://viciouscycleworks.us/Item/06023

Maybe here...as well https://www.meancycles.com/store/mai...ry.cfm?id=2282 for the levers.

Some eBay sellers probably as well as lots of chopper specialty web stores.

Find the drag bars pretty much everywhere, too. Those risers are probably available, I have seen similar. Actually I have seen some brass colored similar, but round that would go better.
These look close...https://www.meancycles.com/store/par...?partID=212141

Brass risers...https://deadbeatcustoms.com/paughco-...s-solid-brass/

Looks like off the shelf parts to me.
