I forget what they are called (they are Nitto track bars), but you have yourself a gem and very rare to find

AX something? Or something like that. They're Nitto and rare. Nitto had a specific open face stem for them too.

The bars are Nitto ADB X. The stem that accompanies them is the Nitto Crystal Blue.

I could answer that, but then I'd have to kill you in your sleep then pull a "Ninja-A- vanish!" POOF!

typically nitto's heat treated alu bars are sleeved, which is the 'spacer' in the photos with those bars mounted up in the stem. it's not an extra piece. i don't know what's up with the other set, it looks like either the sleeve was removed somehow, or they were clamped in a wide stem like a thomson elite and just rubbed clean on either side by hands.

without looking at the markings it's hard to say whether those are a version of nitto ADB-X or a copy.

OK, it was removed by the guy that I got them from, told me it was a scraped up mess so he removed it with a Dremel, THATS why they don't fit my stems! I guess I'll get one of those adaptors/spacers to get them to fit on the stem. BTW thanks to all for the info!

Nah, my daughter was watching some movie about a college band or some ****? although I sometimes think that Vin has a bit of African in him (nothing wrong with it, just sayin') it wasn't him, def a black dude though.
