My AWESOME Ebay handlebars!

......or...... Caveat Emptor!

Fact is, I bought these beauties as a gamble. I lost. The pic was from a distance and blurry and the description was weird if not vague. But, for 4.99 + shipping (don't ask :(), it was worth the risk.

Check out the "custom" slot job-

Why spend a lot of time cutting a neat hole when you can just blow a hole through it with a blow torch? Heck, it'll look great once it's mounted!

Friction ridges are overated. Plus, this way you can adjust your riding position "on the fly". One has to wonder if this is 2 bars pieced together.

Yep......Looks like you got one heck of a deal there. Amazing what some people will do to muck up a perfectly good part that would have been fine with a little care.

Live and learn I guess.
