Recommended Posts

Came across a set of bars on an old husky.They are solid aluminum with no crossbar.They look cool but how well do they work?Does anyone use these?Just looking for opinions on these. Thanks

Those were popular back in the day. They are stronger than you think and absorb vibration and big hits well. But, they flex a lot when pushed. I wouldn't use them if I was racing vintage MX, but they would be period correct and very functional for a trail bike or restoration.

Good call Glory - That's how I've been doing it and it works great! Takes out some of the flex without the harshness of the early steel bars.
