Odd handlebars, anyone seen these before?

Just browsing the offerings on Craigslist and noticed some very unusual bars. They sort of look like backwards drop bars with aero bars grafted onto the ends sticking up very high. Not interested in buying it. I'm just curious about them. Anyone seen anything like these before?

I've only seen pictures. Early attempt at aerobars. I don't think the bike in the pic has them installed correctly.

Odd. Looks like drop bars that someone flipped over, then attached a set of bar ends somehow.

I have seen those before...they are tilted way too far up.

No. I have seen them on a couple of bikes around here. I think they are some form of bar used for time trials type racing. They certainly are not common though.

Nope. All one piece from what I can recall, having seen this type of bar around here on very rare occasions.

Looks like one of Scott's designs, but I don't know what these are called.

WTF?! It looks like you can also get that bike here:

early aero bars, designed to put you in a downhill ski position. When properly adjusted, your hands should be under your chin, channeling the wind around your chest and arms.

Yeah the old scott TT aerobars.

Yep those are Scott bars one of the first aero, timetrial, Triathalon setups.

This is more how they should look

You could buy an optional shifter mount to move your DT shifters up to the briodge in the front.

According to a '94 Scott catalog I have these are early versions (the arm rest was redesigned) of the DH bar which holds the original patent for aero bars and offers 8 hand positions.

Mounted that way they make some sense. In the ad I ran across, I don't think one could safely actuate the brakes. I couldn't. Maybe if you have very long hands.
