WEIRD LOOKING HANDLEBARS. PLEASE HELP ME ID THEM.

I got these yesterday at the Whittier swap meet. One side of the bar looks to have a max height engraved with the lines like it was seat post stock or something.  Don't hawk handlebars look like these, or similar?  They seem to be chromoly or steel because they feel too heavy to be aluminum. A magnet sticks to them too.

Re: WEIRD LOOKING HANDLEBARS. PLEASE HELP ME ID THEM.

My guess is that with those markings, someone made them. Either way they look cool and the welds look good.

They remind me of Flying W or TNT bars.  I looked through some old mags but, couldn't seem to find the ad.

+1 much lower and the plating is not as beefy as the ones I have.

Ya, totally, now your steering the right direction.

Anyone know about the older early to mid 90s bombshell bars or have any idea what these bars I have posted are?  They have too nice of welds to be Wallygoose bars.

Re: WEIRD LOOKING HANDLEBARS. PLEASE HELP ME ID THEM.

I agree with scivic94. that's what I thought of first. More than one company made a bar along those lines in the mid 90's.


If it's got two wheels, jump it.
