Hi VBMX community, I'm the very happy owner of a 1992 Elf Double cross cruiser, can anyone out there confirm if these bars on ebay would be 'period correct' for my ride??
Cheers

Anyone know the seller?? Feedback is spot-on so that's a good start!

Those would look horrendous on your cruiser. Keep what you have now, sweet ride.

Bradster,

In your first post...the seller of those bars is "papawheelie" on bmxmuseum.com - I'm not sure if he's on vintage, but go look for him on the museum if you want to talk to him directly...or talk to him through ebay I guess
