    I can't find any handle bars that suit my wrist which is limited in movement, so I made my own with stainless steel tube, hopefully there will be less aches now :)

    Really nice. As a former hack fabricator, I'd love to see some photos of your projects in process. That would be very interesting to me.

    Thanks.

    thanks all, I have ridden the bike with the bars fitted and they are as good as I could hope for comfort wise so I'm happy,
    just in case anyone wonders on the strength of the welds after grinding and polishing, I hooked them through the rope that holds our dogs toy tyre up and did a couple of 'chin ups' without them pulling apart or bending,
    I am currently making myself a radiator grill from an old fireplace surround (stainless) :D

    Great bars. Great set up.
    Serious question.
    Any information reference the steering damper and fitting.

    it's a hyperpro steering damper that was on the bike when I bought it, the main body is fitted to the top of the frame (bolted through), the part that moves is clamped under the steering head nut
