Your prob right, they are like bar ends were in the early nighties, everyone prob had them, they look very period but like the hite rite they pretty much ruin the flow of a bike. Saying that the one i have came from florida so it would be churlish not to use it :lol:

Rides lovely! It looks great when your on it, nice skinny top tube and the Ritchey twinstrut bars with all the controls are a retro delight. Thought I might be concerned with the narrow bars but this was unfounded. Still it was just a pootle, real test tomorrow and yes it will be getting muddy :D hopefully snap some action shots!


Valve caps are more Nottingham than Essex :wink:
