    Alright folks, I'm Tinkering with this Mid-90's cruiser and trying to get that Sweet spot in a BMX Cruiser Bar at a affordable price :blackeye:

    The stock bars have a ton of up-sweep but no Back-sweep, 27" wide is nice though.
    I've tried the S&M Big Honks, No sweep back. Yuck
    Felt Bars, nice sweep back but at 26 "wide? really?

    Been looking at the AL's trans, Mr. Tick, S&M SAC Bars, ect...

    Found this thread here http://ratrodbikes.com/forum/index.php?threads/anyone-interested-in-custom-s-m-cruiser-bars.104919/

    $70 and up

    What are you guys using? and what was $$$ damage? Good lord on some of the Vintage stuff :crazy2:

    I have a few of these bars from Genuine Bicycles, they’re pretty cool, click the link below.

    Nice sweep back too. If you’re in Los Angeles I would suggest checking out his bicycle shop, Atomic Cycles.

    WOW! That Hum is Mint-O :thumbsup:
    Thanks for that BMX link, was looking at those Velo Orange Klunker bars and the Big K bars, good stuff.
    So I guess all the nice bars are $70+ and up :eek:
    Time for a sell-off of some stuff.

    I’m using this set on my strandie currently.
    I believe they came off some sort of ‘city/cruiser’ bike.
    They’re silver painted steel
    Almost like mini apehangers, but not really. Decent pullback (flat bars make my hands go numb after 3-4 miles).

    Another option to consider is motorcross bars WW84250-600x600.jpeg DFF449B7-C82B-4944-9CAE-524372A33F9B__14117.1564154346.1280.1280.jpg
    All kinds of ideas out there!

    Als are nice. I have a few of them. I’m pretty sure he has made them with different back sweep.

    Mr. tick or tick one, makes nice klunker bars. They have a lot of back sweep. They are almost cartooney how big they are. He does a few different styles.

    Wow, those Velo Orange Klunker bars look cool!

    I've been running some S&M Husky bars the last year (my good friend has a set, too) and we've enjoyed them. They're WIDE!

    I had them on my Jamis Earth Cruiser to start but now they're on my Sidewinder. My buddy runs his on his Schwinn heavyweight custom cruiser.

    The bars/EC can be seen further down on this thread: https://thecabe.com/forum/threads/1982-jamis-earth-cruiser-5-speed.145026/

    Sick ride, Joaquin!
    Ummm, BentRims, is that frame what I think it is? It's gotta be a replica, right?

    I don't know what that Bike Frame is, that pic is from Mr.Tick's Facebook site. It's definitely a True 3-Bar Cruiser or BMX for sure.

    VELO ORANGE KLUNKER BARS are Sweet with a 45% Sweep, but takes a 25.4 stem, I need a 22.2 and sold-out in black.

    Yeah, for a second, I thought someone had hacked a bike that belongs in the Smithsonian. I thought it was a ... Breezer!
