I have a set of Nickel bars here that I've had since 81. My dad extended them and I flattened them out. Since then I have had them powdered Proline red to preserve the nickel better.
I have several pairs of Vbars and I love them.I love my GT bars better though.

Re: V-Bars discuss

I dig my rare 82 Sting bars. I do prefer the traditional Sting bars but this is a rare 82 Sting Comp and I figured I'd put the correct year bars on it. Many people dont know that Schwinn made V bars for one year for the Stings (82)

It's gonna be another fun year for retro goodness....... big_smile

Re: V-Bars discuss

Redline made some 8" V bars recently. Planet BMX has them.

there's V bars, and there's V bars.
I've ridden a lot of too skinny V bars with to much back sweep, and they're awful.
I think Redline did make some nice pro sized bars with proper dims.

Re: V-Bars discuss

V-bars were the business. 
I remember seeing my first pair of these bars around 76-77 on a local racer's bike. He had a nickel set, and my friends and I went crazy over them.


All my bikes are for sale except the Cheetahs. Inquire within.

Re: V-Bars discuss

V-Bars are cool as hell      big_smile

CW's handlebars look hideous   tongue


Gnarly is when it's beyond radical, it's balls out danger, & or perfection, & or skill or all of that combined. Nobody can shred like that guy, he's gnarly.                                        \m/  ( º . º )  \m/

Re: V-Bars discuss

CW bars are different but they ride nice. they are crazy stiff and do not flex like V bars.
the v bar design flexes too much to be competitive for todays riders.

I really like the redline V bars myself. most of my redlines have v bars. and i agree the 24"
bars are small but the larger 26" feel fine and the 28" bars are downright roomy smile
