One is missing its end cap but otherwise they're in good shape. The logo appears to be WT or possibly the opposite. These are on my 1984 (I think) Univega Alpina Pro. Catalog might have listed them, but the '84 catalogs available online don't include the MTB/ATB bike line. Thanks for any insight!

Well, that was fast! And super helpful!

[Edit]

You're exactly right, they are Wilderness Trail Bike grips, their inexpensive DC Trail model specifically.

Thanks!
