I was traveling for work today and found a small Triumph shop full of old parts that had the distance piece for my rear brake drum that I was looking for and on the shelf staring at me was these Twisted Metal Z Bars. I wanted something a little better than stock for my T100 bobber and these were exactly what I was looking for. After about an hour of hand polishing I would say I have the chrome back to a 8/10. Is there something I should do to them to protect them now that they are cleaned up? Also, does anyone know what they are, there are no markings and the old guy said they were from the 70's so I am guessing they are some sort of AEE bars. They are 7/8" and pretty heavy from the solid twisted metal. I don't really care that much what they are, I just like them and want to keep them in top shape. I am going to have to find some nice risers that will work with these and my conical front end as the stock p-clamps will not work at all. Oh and to answer the obvious question, I got them for $40.

Tell your wife I'll double your money and pay $40 for those ;) I bet she'll jump at the chance to make a few bucks on some old junk you dragged home...


Nice score...where's the pics of the rest of the project?

The shop is on King Street East in Saint John and it is called Olde English Motorcycles. They are in the Yellow Pages.

AEE never sold twisted handlebars. In fact other than very early on they never sold anything that was twisted. Just not their style. We did sell a shit laod of z-bars along the way that's for sure but they were never marked as ours except the part number tag.

Well this is the never ending/progressing project they are going be mounted on. I trolled the classifieds on the JJ and on eBay and have not found the "right" set of risers to mount these to my conical front end. I have been looking for some pictures to see what these would have been mounted with back in the 70's, but, I haven't come up with anything yet. I am thinking some sort of offset risers like the Flanders , but, I don't want them up too high. Its also hard to find something in good shape of at least in the same condition as the bars. Anyway, I am in no hurry so they will turn up eventually.
