They are called Chicken Stix, fairly lightweight, for canti's. Not the best looking lever in the world in my eyes...but thats just personal opinion.

I fell in love with them BITD, still love them now and have 2 pairs! (think its a bit of a fetish!)
I had gold ones on my '94 Lava Dome when I was a nipper, I loved that bike!!

Those are earlier ones with the engraved logos. They were far east made levers that were given the trimnell treatment: lightened bodies, machined levers, ti bolts and a cool finish. Great canti levers in my opinion, robust but light weight with enough grip on the levers to cope with British winter gloves thanks to the machining. Good score!
