the onza bar ends i got don't seem to fit inside the bar right, so i have decided to order these, i think they will really look good with the flouro yellow.

just added the gear cables & bottle cage, and the bar ends arrived today so i've fitted them, i can't stop looking at her, spent 10 mins with a nice brew just looking at her.
so whats the opinion on the bar ends. personally i really like them,
i know they are not period correct, but i feel i've added a little personal touch.

Nice bike.

I like the bar-ends, they are good :thumbs:

Not digging the bars however what would an 8 year old (when this was built)
know about much.


:D

the bars are original to the bike, but as much as i'd like a more lighter nicer looking bar, the renthal bars are staying.
i'm sure any pace purist would agree, it has to be right.
but thanks for the feedback.
