    Help identifying brand of handlebars

    Hello --

    One of the reasons I finally joined was to ask this question and I put it in here because it isn't exactly a mechanic question but more of a general question.

    I bought a 97 Tequesta that had been slightly altered over the years. The previous owner had made changes, which I expected, but he had put on riser bars that I just didn't care for. My wife bought me a flat bar for Christmas (along with a box of parts that were needed) and I changed it out today. When I took the riser bars off they had a logo like a shopping cart with bike handlebar handles on the front and some kind of logo stamped under the grip but it is hard to make out and kind of looks like a stylized NL.

    It seems a lot of the parts were from 2007 that he used when changing stuff, but I can't tell if it is a 7 or a 1 stamped on the bars (leaning toward 2007) and also is the following:

    MTB-AL-153
    TH (maybe)
    W:589
    2007
    01C
    10*

    Anyone know what brand these are or where they originated? I'm mostly just curious at this point. I'll take a few pictures tomorrow but I've got to get some sleep and the camera is not nearby.

    Here's an image of the little design on the front --

    I've never seen that logo on anything before -- which leaves me at a complete loss since I can't really make out the stampings.

    A graphic of a shopping cart on bicycle handlebars? Now THAT is strange!

    Do your bars look like this?:

    Stop obsessing over the equipment, and just ride your damn bike!

    <My guess> They were sent from Asia, probably Taiwan.

    That is what I figured, but I was just curious. I took a picture of the other identifying marks on it. I'm sure it is just generic, but I figured it was worth a try to find out.
