I've seen hundreds of springer handle bar trees with the bars cut off but I think this is the only cut off handle bar I've seen. I guess they all went right into the trash. I found this in my cable pile. This one happens to be an NOS military bar that was cut off with a pipe cutter leaving the cable intact...excellent! It has the spiral and all the NOS internals right down to the set screw.... just what I need to slip into my Flanders!
