Nice indeed!

Those bar ends are Onza by the way, have just purchased some myself. Think a couple of brands sold them under their name as well.

Thanks !
But..
Onza?? You got to be kidding , I bought them from jimmenzies on Ebay including shipment from the UK to the Netherlands for : £5.00 !!
Removed a part of the bar-ends anyway , as I always did this in the '90's.

Well like I say Zoom rebranded some but I know they are the same as the Onza ones. Mine are identical to yours and have onza caps in the top of them anyway :D

Very nice 8) , there may be some keyboard bashing concerning the use of riser bars and barends though, flat (maybe carbon ?) bars would look better, but if the bike is comfortable to ride as it is that's the main thing :wink:

What do you mean by placards ?, stickers/decals ?

As i suspected , i thought the riser and the bar-ends would be like cursing in the church. :twisted: and I don't mind because I am an atheist :mrgreen:
And its al about comfort for me, apart from winning the retro world series, it's suposed to be cruising...
placards=stickers
