The logo is a capital M with a line thru the top part of the M.

The only parts company I can think of would be MWAVE which to my knowledge makes entry level but is modern and the logo is different.

This pic is of some aluminum road drops.



Thanks!

Yeah, they're from a Motobecane. I have no idea who actually made them.

Ok, that was in the back of my mind- that it was a bike company specific part and it was Motobecane, but from what little I ever saw the M has up and down sides and not angled. I don't go near Motobecane- very rare to find the brand around me and its almost always head scratchingly expensive.

google images shows the exact logo. Thanks- shoulda put more than a quick thought into it!

Looks to be a bar from.a Motobecane......
Some of their bars actually had rubber covering on it, so you do not have to tape them up......

Guys, you can stop speculating. It's definitely Motobecane. The first reply noted this.

Correct on Motobecane. Made by Japanese supplier SR. Some years had the single rubber coated wrap from Hutchinson with the M logo.

It's Motobecane branded. Not sure who actually made them. For some reason I think SR made them.

I second the SR idea. That wreath of leaves looks pretty similar to these SR Road Champions.
