I have been given this recently and am trying to ID the bars any suggestions. Ulta narrow with built in bar ends and retro annodised pink/purple. Trying to decide weather to keep for my Bromwich Cyclone project or to ebay.

Cheers for the answer. I suspected as much as there is a USE seat post on the bike as well. In its day had been built up as a full on XC bike 16" frame with a 300mm+ post sticking out of the top. Flex stem DX thumbies. The running gear has been replaced with cheep $*!t and is going in the bin but the rest will be salvaged.
The bars are straight as a die -def old skool and narrower than a narrow thing.

You find a hole in the time / space contiumn and create a temporary gap and quickly slip them on before it slams shut - but seriously the bar ends detatch using a 4mm allen key thru a hole in the underside of the bars. - have just manhed to scratch one end of bar cutting old grips off :cry:
