A newbie seeking some info on what i had

Hello everyone!
I have mostly joined this forum to get some info on a bike that was stolen form me as a teenager. I'm not exactly a true bike enthusiast, I just have an old cheap beach cruiser from my grandfather that I ride around my little town.
I do have a little interest in bikes though so I may pop in from time to time to learn whatever I can like possible why I can never adjust a set of brakes to get them working again.

OK so the bike I'm seeking info on is ( was 😭 ) a GT dyno nitro 24" which I believe was a 1997 based on the light blue decals.
It was stolen from me around 2012 and I guess I just never got over it. I was never into BMX but I absolutely loved the size and weight of this awesome looking chrome bike that was light enough for me to carry with one hand.
The seat was bare plastic and the rims were a bit rusty by the time the family friend gave it to me, but other than that and the breaks not working great it was in pretty good condition.
The reason I'm seeking any and everything I can learn about the GT dyno nitro is the fact that mine had a non standard set ( based on pics I've seen ) of black GT handlebars that had a skinny removable or adjustable center bar.
I'll never get it back or own another, but I never got over losing it so I guess I'm just seeking info on it as a form of closure.

Any and all info you folks can give me about this model and the handlebars that were on it would greatly be appreciated.

BTW this may be a long shot, but I lived in citrus heights California when it was stolen so maybe someone who lives in the area will see it somewhere. I guess the only 2 things that would identify it would be those handlebars and having a mongoose seat on it.

Sorry to hear about your bike being stolen. The handlebars would have been something added later on as Dyno's didn't come stock with them. A couple different manufactures made adjustable handlebars one of them being Galindo. You can get modern versions like Renthal RENTHAL BMX Handlebars - MOTO24 27.5 INCH WIDE / 5.5 INCH RISE

Thanks for the info.
They were definitely this style of handlebars, I'm remembering them saying GT on them somewhere like on the bar or mounting pieces but maybe I'm mistaken.

Somebody's gotta have some info for me.
It won't do anything but educate me on the bike I owned and loved before it was stolen, but I'd sure to learn something about it.

Any info would be appreciated.

I always loved those three spoke GT wheels.
