black flat bars

I'm wanting to try some flat bars, but on the cheap. I'd prefer them to be black. I can always chop some old bars down, but again I'd like for the bar itself to be black. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions?

Thanks.

Take your allen keys and go find an abandoned mountain bike that nobody will miss. You might have to shim it to fit your stem (depending).
