    Need some one off drag bars. BTR style bars. Hard to find special order bars. I know personally I have purchased two pairs of Clubman bars for builds and with postage seems they set me back about $68.

    Well NO MORE!

    Got these bars at the second hand bike shop for $5. So there you go awesome BTR bars for $5.

    He is your hack. Get some BMX bars with a thick center bar. Flip them over and cut them down to size.

    I did put end caps on my cuts with a bit of brass but you can buy 1" end caps at Ace or where ever you shop.


    Only required shop tool is a hack saw.
