By the way King Stinger I like your Univega cruiser..

Mine came with bars that look pretty close to King Sting bars,what bars did yours have?I put GT Expert bars on it now.I thought the bars were King Sting bars but are a little different.Might be early Patterson bars,going on my King Sting!
Here is a link to bars like mine

I have a thread somewhere here from several years ago where I have/had the same bars, and thought they might have been Pattersons, as well.  However, no one could positively ID them, and they finally ended up being sold to someone in TN.  I even had old Patterson ads to try and make a match.


Wanted- White Industries Freewheel 19T and 20T, and Big Gulp bars- because I think they look goofy enough to cruise with!
