Vintage Bar/Stem combos

Just saw this old Cinelli bar/stem combo. I've never seen a vintage setup like it, only the new carbon fiber deals. I was wondering if anyone has seen others like it, and if so what other companies made them.

Would make for a beautifully clean vintage track setup.

I believe they did make a track bar like that, with the big drops. That's the first road version I've seen.

There is a guy in town who ride a chromveleto (sp?) Cramerotti conversion fixed gear with titanium one piece bar and stem bullhorns, super flexy and pretty ugly, but novel.

Yes, but those look titanium. I was wondering if any companies were making them (except for kiddie bars) back in the days.

They are titanium. If you can make these bars out of titanium, it would be far easier to make using steel as to make smooth bends in steel is easy whereas to do it with titanium is very complex.

I picked up over 10 sets of steel bars for children when I raided the Cinelli warehouse a few years back. Give how many they made of children's bars, it is only natural to think that they might have also made some for adults, although I cannot say that I have ever seen any, but then there are so many variants of Cinelli bars that I have never seen before, it is only natural to believe if it was possible to make, they did indeed make them.
