I know handle bars are pretty cheep , that's I why it's never been a big deal buying them.
But unless you get to hold em in your grubby mitts and sit on the bike ( pretending your sat on an empty road in the baking sun ) then buying online is a bit hit and miss.
It was then a quick blast to My mates workshop . " hello Dave" where I used his mitre saw to cut some angles.
A bit of grinding and welding later and....
DINGDANGDOO. A lovely set of bars.
I'm right chuffed and they are even and level.
I'm gunna cut em to length later .
I took my rusty wheel rim and had it powder coated .
I'm not sure why I chose white ( I'm a grubby fecker that hates cleaning ) but at least it will look nice once.
Then I got a few spokes , to replace the ones I broke dismantling it, and a set of shiney nipples.
Then rebuilt it twice , as I got it wrong the first time. Blame it on the beer.
