So if they made some 26.0 stems, it seems reasonable to think they also made some 26.0 handlebars?
Yes, there were 26.0 "early" Cinelli bars. I have had two, mine were without anodizing. The VAST majority of the "crest" bars are 26.4. But, test, don't guess.
Some claim the knurling for the stem provides identification, measure.
