Not fussed on brand (but extra credit for English ones)

Any ideas? From a shop, for sale, swapsies ... ?

Fab - thanks for that!

Building my Pace as a red, white and blue front end with UK bits and want to show the bar colour.

I might put Union Jack stickers under the grips ;)

I thought about having "love" and "hate" tattooed on the bars, with a bulldog for a headbadge!

Not for long, though :)

Question is, is silver ok for the white bar, or should I get one powder coated?

Any pics of the Wiskas?

Thread on the wiskas here...

http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... ght=wiskas

I have silver Answer bars on it... I'll see what the stickers look like before making a decision but I'm thinking white & black will be OK - or I might do some fancy trimming with a scalpel to remove as much white as I can - it's sad but I think it will be fun :shock:

I've got some blue RC130 bars that are about 21" wide... I might put them on for a photo session and a laugh one day :?
