Vintage MX Handlebars

The 70’s era MX/Enduro’s came stock with pretty unique handlebars. They were typically tall and wide with a high cross bar and a generous pull back. Unfortunately, it’s pretty hard to find a straight pair of these vintage bars to run on your old bike. So, I’ve been working on remaking these old bars but with updated stronger materials. I’m looking forward to showing off the prototypes soon. I hope to have a small batch in production shortly after which will be for sale through Cast & Salvage. Until then, get stoked on these old MX photos with all the riders running these awesome old style MX bars.
