Mega old mercier road bike

My father in law has a mega old mercier road bike. 60s or early 70s. He is getting to an age where the drops are a bit much for him and he wants some flats putting on it. He wants them to be a decent match for what he has, so old looking and alloy.

My question is, can anybody recommend anywhere where I could source such a thing?

    Alu flat bars..? Can be had or ordered from almost any cycle shop, online or high street.

    Be mindful of clamp size, and that the existing drop bar levers may not be compatible.

    Planet X have a good selection with clamp sizes listed. Many are 1" (25.4mm) but some are 26mm and there are others that are close but not quite the same.
