Re: top 10 most rare handlebars.

Handlebars don't get rarer than these Shadow Racing Bull Bars, only a few exist:

Re: top 10 most rare handlebars.

1985 Uni Cross-Fire bars, Composite Plastic/Carbon Fiber. 2 sets ever made. The Uni Cross-Fire number plates was would simply snap into these bars with no fasteners necessary.   

1 set can be seen on the Uni Cross-Fire Bike, that set went to the Bike Gallery for a rider to use and test. I once owned this set of bars and they now reside in Georgia. The other set is unknown as to where it is.

Spoke to Uni about these bars, only 2 ever made, the tooling to make theses bars was scrapped and could only produce up to 8 sets of safe handlebars. I have seen these bars advertised in only 1 magazine mail order company ad (forgot the issue and which company) and the retail price was over $200.00, $275 or more if memory serves.

Maybe, if someone asks the owner nicely, that set in Georgia can be photographed and that ad scanned.

No idea what the difference is on the graveyard bars.  There's a set of zero-sweep that's selling on ebay germany...but i'm not interested in zero-sweep.


It's like the man says, there's no problems...only solutions.

Re: top 10 most rare handlebars.

These came from a neighbor of mine when he cleaned out his garage a few years back. Our homes were built in 72/73 and are about a mile from where CW Racing had their shop in Yorba Linda in the early 80's. He got these for one of his sons from CW and as best as he can remember, had to have them made with the sweep back because his son was short. lol

They measure 27 1/2" wide and 8" rise from center to center. They are chromoly, light and have really nice welds. The decal says "ELF BMX".

1 year only Procraft cruiser bars   One of my favorite bars ever!

Yeah, those are my favorites too. I bought a 24 Procraft a while back, the guy I bought it from said he gave the bars to a local tweaker and put them on his tweaker homeless dude mountain bike. I keep $100 in my pocket just in case I ever see the guy, and I keep an eye out at the scrap yard....someday!  lollollol

I also dig asymmetrical bars. like the Cooks Bros, or the ones (I can't remember the manufacturer) that are 4 pc style on one side, and 2 pc style on the other.

Re: top 10 most rare handlebars.

Got to jump in on this. Blue Peregrine Q-bars (Homeless Bars which have 1 pair chrome). Level bars which think they only made 1 or 2 pairs.

I had a pair of zero-sweep Peregrine Q's.  I remember my buddy and I going through a whole batch of them at Trend, looking at the sweeps, which were different.
