You sure you want a bullhorn? MTB flat bars are 25.4, and dirt cheap. Add barends and you're done. You can buy one, and keep chopping it little by little until you get the length dialed in just right.
I've had 2 'horns and then a flat bar... flat is WAY better 4 me. You can grab it a lot wider on the flats while its exterior width is not greater than a 'horn (cuz it has no bendy part). Plus I like to rest my hand on the corner, which you can't really do w/ 'horns.

i would have to say find some old bars and chop and flop em. last time i checked it was still free to do that if you have a saw and some old drops
i have already done this, but unfortunately, because the handlebar was very cheap, it isn't exactly round. this causes problems when mounting the brake lever to it. i had to cut a piece of old tube and slide it over the handlebar as sort of a gasket. i'm not sure how comfortable i am with this. thanks for the replies. I guess my plan for now is to find regular drops that are mandrel bent and chop them. if anybody has any extra bars, let me know.. thanks.
