    Your thoughts on these bars.

    Just like the title says. Just wondering if people would indulge me with their thoughts on style and what not. I happen to like them and I am thinking about bidding on these. I really dig the look of them.

    Spotted those too. They'd look pretty on a rebuild. And they would totally raise the value of any Thylacine frame (the value of the bike after adding the frame would be whatever you paid for just the bars).

    All in all, cool looking, I'd never use them. Unique as all hell

    Well I love mousatche bars alot and these just have that flowing look of those. I would love to build a slightly newer steel bike around these. But I am broke and already have a bike.

    What if a track bar made love to a moustache bar? Ah, I see...

    Well...then I'd recomend cleaning your bars before your next ride.

    Do they come with enough brillo pads to remove all that surface rust? I hope they are cheap. Shape is cool though.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    Let this be a warning to you all, children. Don't let 165 sit on your bars.

    Don't mean to be the party kill but I think they look like they should be on the ends of blender beaters instead of a bicycle stem.

    I LOVE the shape of them. I think they're too far gone to really use though. What I think you should do with them is buy them and send them to someone with the equipment to bend up a new set with exactly that shape. Then tell me who that person is so I can get a set too.
    Maybe Thylacine will indulge us? In fact, these bars should come standard with the new curved top tube fixed bike that I KNOW he's drawing up as I type this. So sexy, so right.
    I think they rock.

    they would definately make some cool bars for my coaster-brake "bar-bike." i think id run them inverted on that bike though. definately like em.

    a little steel wool will take that rust right off. if it doesnt come off easily enough with straight steel wool, try spraying some WD-40 on, then steel wool em some more.
