Cinelli gilco bars

I have recently acquired some cinelli gilco bars and a guerciotti stem. They were on a Miyata 610 i picked up. I haven't seen anything like this before does anyone know anything about them? Also the stem is Cinelli the clamp bolt is underneath and there is no opening to provide clamping action so i don't know how works. I have taken the bolt right out and there is no movement at all. Again anybody have any ideas?

I know I've seen something about those bars before, just can't recall where.
The stem looks like a Cinelli 1R.
The allen bolt under the stem moved the clamp which is sort of internal to the bar.
Try pressing the handlebars towards the back of the stem gently, if the inner sleeve
moves the bars should then just slide out normally. You might also want to try
some lube in the hole where the allen bolt was originally, just remember to
clean it well before putting new bars in there.

Yeah, there's an internal slide/wedge thing that works a bit like an expander wedge at the bottom of a stem quill. Sometimes you need to spray some light oil in there and bump it with a mallet to get it to let go of the bar.
Those Exa bars were designed to fit the human hand grip profile better than round bars, and be stiffer too. Good for sprinters, I guess.
You mount the brake levers just like a round bar, but tightening down tends to deform the band clamps so they're difficult to get on a round bar again.
Cinelli supplied some cool hexagonal bar end plugs with these bars when new. Round ones won't work at all.

bars

thanks guys. I finally got around to your suggestions, i squirt some Kroil in there and then forgot about it. Today i saw them sitting there and got my leather mallet, held onto the stem and gave it tap on top and lo and behold the bars just swung down and then slid out easy as can be.

Those were on a 610? I don't think they could possibly be original, could they?

definetly not original to the 610. I think the original were SR rando bars or something. besides these bars were in a Guerciotti panto'd 1R stem

I've got a set of those that I had on my Colnago until recently. They're now in a box in storage.

I had no problems with the band clamps on the brake levers I installed & removed. Also, some round bar end plugs will work. I think I used the standard Cinelli plugs that came with Cinelli cork tape. Granted, I had to smack them with a mallet to get them to install, but they worked just fine.
