Ive looked for a while before I posted here but all in vein.....
Does anyone know of a company that makes 31.8 Mustache type
handlebars, or Mungos like on a Redline 925 ??

TIA

Quality Bike Products manufactures a shim under the Problem Solvers brand that takes a 25.4 bar up to a 31.8. Not sure if this helps but it's an option.

Why don't you dudes just get a 25.4 stem? They're generally cheaper than 31.8.

anyone know of one with a true 31.8 diameter?
i have a stem with a 31.8 clamp and cutouts (syncros AM).
i can always use a shim as a last resort (it actually comes with one), but i'd hate to cover up the bar if i didn't have to.

thanks!

The stem has cutouts? Make a shim from a pop or beer can and display your favorite part of the can from out of the cutout.
