Bought & paid.
I spoke with the admin at the Vector USA FB page. Was told that a “standard” bar would not take a full size cross-bar pad, so that would be an easy way to differentiate them from cut “pro” bars.
So absolutely, unequivocally... these are uncut 26” (nominal) Standard Vector bars made in Knoxville, TN. Exact size is at 25 7/8”. (No, they didn’t cut precisely 1/16” off of each end, and then refinish with chrome). And as shown in the linked pics, these bars will not take a full size cross pad. Hope that clears anything up.
I do appreciate the scrutiny, though. I’d much rather make absolutely sure that I have what I think I have, rather than sell something wrong and get a bad rep. Thats not sarcasm at all. Sincere thanks, bro.

These are uncut. First run originals are 26” right out of the factory. Thats why I included the advertisement that shows them. Look at the top right bars in the ad: 26”.
Like I said, it took me a bit of research, but its all there. These are first year production uncut Vector bars.
What’s your best offer?
(And FYI, BMX Museum doesn’t allow friends/family payment requests. I never use it anyway, whether buying or selling).
Just wanted to add to the positive reviews on these. I had been looking for ANYTHING that would come close to just doing the trick, short of fashioning some plastic pieces myself. They fit as snug as a glove; those four tiny pins line up exactly right without fussing at all.
The only difference I did notice, (and it’s not a deal breaker in the slightest), is the orientation of “Made in the USA.” The one pedal cap I still had intact has the phrase reading long-ways “portrait” top to bottom. These are oriented with the phrase in “landscape” side-to-side. Again, this is not a complaint or hangup in any manner whatsoever. Rather, it has me wondering if Skyway made them both ways? Is “portrait” orientation an anomaly? Or was this a well-thought-out move to avoid making exact replicas that could later on be passed off as new? And maybe nobody knows because it doesn’t matter much anyway? (Well, not to me, because I didn’t pay big money for mine. Someone else out there may, though).
I suppose there’s also the possibility that this has already been explained thoroughly somewhere else, and I’m out of my element like Donnie on “The Big Labowski.” In any event, they worked perfect for me. Keep up the good work!
