A Nitto Tsubasa handlebar is virtually impossible to find. Produced during the 70s for a short duration of time, they were always limited in quantity. Someone told me there are less than 50 left in the entire world. To find one in mint condition for sale is near impossible. Needless to say, I found one in a really shitty condition. I had BP Factory in Nerima-ku fix it up and re-paint it. They did a fantastic job. I had it up on Yahoo auction in Japan with the starting bid at ¥135,000 yen, then it dawned on me that this would look killer on my Iribe frame which I had stored for a later build. So I took it off the auction, resulting in a few angry bidders. I'm glad I did. Never would I have imagined it would come out this good. The bike shop that put this together put it up on their blog.
In such pristine condition, the handlebars in itself is worth more than the frame.
Anyone interested in taking this beauty off my hands, give me an offer.

Idiot.

Like a Corima on a street-use bike is practical, or a Pista with white rims and tires is pretty.

Sexy! However, the Aerospoke

Sexy!

However, the Aerospoke is on backwards; the blunt end of the spoke should be the leading edge.

That's one beautiful bike. There doesn't look like there's much room for your hands comfortably for any period of time on those bars? Have you ridden it? At any rate, that's a striking build.

How do you tighten the steam/bars in place? It's obviously too clean to have the normal hardware, but i am having trouble figuring out where the bolt would be.
