It's time to play another game of "Name the bars". So anyone have any ideas? They are cruiser bars, 29" wide, little bit of a sweep to them. "Mexico" is stamped on the left side where the grip would go. There is double knurling that looks like it was made to accomodate a double clamp stem. Any ideas?

Kastan did make bars, although the ones that I've seen look nothing like these. I asked a friend who came over the other day and he said maybe Kastan also, but he wasn't certain either. Someone must know. Thanks for the input.

Yep look like Kastans, I had a set just like them and I'm pretty sure they were 29" wide as well.

I found a pic of some Kastan bars in the research section, the knurling looks the same, but those have a Powerbend like the Powerlite bars. Mine are just straight. I think we might be on to something though.
