Looking for Cinelli bullhorn bars

Does anyone know where I might find some vintage cinelli bullhorn bars with a 26.4 clamp size? I've got some Cinelli Giro d'Italia 64 drop bars of mid-80s vintage to trade or cash. They are for my 83 Merckx track bike. Help me out if you know anyone who has some!

As far as I know, Cinelli only ever made two types of bullhorns, the LA 84 and the Tempo. You can find either or both on eBay with some regularity. The only problem is that I think Cinelli had dropped the 26.4 clamp size by this time. You could definitely shim it with a little bit of soda or beer can, if you want to use your Cinelli stem.

Some Cinelli LA 84 bars on eBay.

I guess I stand corrected on the 26.4 bit.

I picked up a pair of the Cinelli LA 84 TT bars in original good condition yesterday. i'm curious if they are still sought after by mid-80's bike purists. i havent tried them yet and don't know if i like them yet. but they do look cool. if i don't like them, i'll sell them.

I personally love my LA84's

I have cut down my bars a slight bit since this picture was taken and now use a slightly shorter stem.

ok, yeah i saw you and your bike. it looks good. as far as these LA84s, they are fine. i really can't see myself riding anywhere but the tops, so i will probably pass them along on ebay for whatever they're worth (+shipping).

3T (back when it was TTT) made a deep TT-bullhorn. It was the 'Moser', named after you-know-who.

The images are quite wide, so I'm not embedding them.

I have a pair, though they're newer then the ones pictured above (new logo, design near clamp area). They have a 26.0 clamp diameter, and are similar to the LA84 mentioned.
