Nice find and a nice build that. Amazing to see a late 80s bike that isn't at least the size of a 5 bar gate for once.
... btw your bar issue is because 1988 (yours) and 87 (mine) Hardrocks came with riser bars with a 26mm diameter clamp. Bugger to find I can tell you.
Yes i noticed that too , i do have the original bars but they are shot to bits with rust , still its not a showroom rebuild and i have done it on a shoestring so pretty happy
