CW Bars or not?

Measure 26"x9"  stamped  MX-33STD   HL  86C  on the right bar

Thought they looked like CW Mustache bars

Any ideas?

Re: CW Bars or not?

if the knurling (where the stem attaches) is cross-hatched (not straight lines, but  perpendicular lines that form Xs) it's a good chance they're CW. I know the early CW bars weren't stamped though.

Re: CW Bars or not?

very close to NBL DB bars I use - I have a genuine pair of cw mustache bars so I can compare them.

I will check for markings and measurements and let you know.

Re: CW Bars or not?

my DB bars measure less then the CW bars - grips are on them, so kinda hard to get an exact width reading on the stanley tape measurerrr   my cw knurling is tight diamond pattern, the db bars are straight line knurling.


I need to take a grip off to tell if any lettering is present. The welds differences are pretty evident and so is the way the bend (the mustache bar part )is on the cw bar vs the other stock db bar.
