Thanks! Did the mock up and checked out the fit. Just need to get the decals made up and she's got a date with toxic Harold in BC (when he has a bit of space in his schedule).

Do the grips have a name? I wouldn't mind something similar for an 80's build I've got planned.

They look exactly like ski-pole handles (I wonder if they're inter-changeable size wise)

They are called Oakley 3 Grips. They are for BMX, but a lot made it on to early 80s mtbs back in the day. Being vintage BMX they are a bit pricey.
