mostly original bits, should just need a bit of tinkering with the brakes to have it ready to rock

Nice that. 8)
These had fallen off my radar when I was looking for something similar. Need to keep my eyes open.

from the factory these had higher bars, maybe 3 or 4 inches rather than the 2 inches these are.

There aren't a lot of options out there for the 22.2 diameter it seems, Renthal jumpbar in 3" seems to be about the sweet spot, but that's only 1 extra inch.

These look like great fun. I couldn't justify one with too many toys already. Bars wise you could try DMR braced wing bars in chromo. I have them on my Rhythm as normal 2" bars were not enough. Other wise your into cruiser BMX bars world, S&M do some smart ones.
