Welding modification of handlebars

Post by Prof J » Thu Feb 06, 2020 11:16 pm


It's been some years, however, in the past when I was needing a specific handlebar 'setup', I'd cut/angle up a handle bar and have it professionally re-welded. Always worked out nicely and gave me the position needed for my stature/reach, etc.

I'm thinking of doing the same for this bike. Wondering if anyone has done something similar, or any other thoughts re: the process?

I would be interested if you do as I find current bar position a bit uncomfortable. Please let me no if you go ahead. Tim

Timbo, just got the info from Pud1 that the bars are steel (= weldable). So it may take me some time, other projects to get the bike running. I am on it.
