bought these on ebay t'other day.
guessing they are an early version as they are smooth (if they weren't quite so scratched) and welded as apposed to bonded.
they weigh next to nothing.
how rare are these ??

Why Accepting the Absolute Golf Anchor is So Important

The 1st gen barends brought out by Xlite in 1991 I believe...they showcased their stuff in my local bike shope, Horswells in Bournemouth...they should clean up a treat... :)

Hi,

Nice to meet you all.

I've just come across this forum when looking for details of the same bar ends I've just put up on eBay 150586121957

Should I be linking this to the for sale thread?

They've been in my loft for ages but I think I bought them in the early 90's

For some reason I think they are also Titanium

They where fitted to my pre production Rocky Mountain Stratos circa 1988 which I've been looking to sell but did not know where to start.

Expect to see it post here some day soon.

Cheers

Wreford

you can link here if you like.

i don't however think they are titanium unless someone has info otherwise.

alu is lighter than Ti and these are feather light, so would point more towards alu.

they may have Ti bolts though.
