Handle bar ID

I picked these bars up @ a cool old bike shop in Cleveland this past weekend. They are on the small size for me but the engraving was too cool to pass up! They also had a set of the super cool GB bars w/ the map of England on them w/ Suntour bar end shifters and old leather Brooks wrap BUT they weren't for sale.... I also picked up two pair of ITM bars, one w/ a 90mm ITM stem and Universal brake levers w/ gum hoods in excellent condition. Sorry for the crappy pics but my camera does not take good closeup shots

Uhmmmm.... Guidons Philippe??? (French, of course)
Used commonly on Peugeots of the 70's and 80's.

it helps if you put them in front of a less busy background, have better lighting, and don't get so close with your camera. Like 4+ feet back. You can get much better results even with shi-poopy cameras.

that top one looks like a nitto world or somethingerother to me. One came on my fuji Finass-t.

Lol, yep, that sounds like the French. Try the macro bottom on your digital camera.

Definitely look for the "Macro" setting... might be a picture of a flower on the selector wheel.

Now that you figured out your digital camera, you can ask for something vintage bike related for your birthday.

Good point! Any other input on the bars?

+1 - Pretty sure I've got a set of those on one of my Gitane's. The lion head (at least I think it's a lion) are one of my favorite. I believe they're CTA.
