BMX Handlebars. Digital display.

I turned some little slugs on the lathe and tapped them, then welded them to one of the sets of BMX bars I have. They’re really cheap ones, and therefore made of quite thick  high-tensile steel, instead of thinner chromoly, basically the same gauge as you’d find on most production motorbikes. The grip area will need to be made wider to fit everything on there. I’ve got an internal throttle to use so hopefully they’ll still look pretty clean and BMX’y.

The speedo/rev counter head unit is by Dakota Digital. I would guess its from the late 90’s but it’s display uses green 7 segment units, which looks totally 80’s, like when the computers come on-line in the beginning of Alien.
