Cool old mtb, not the lightest, but rides nice. Needs a new paint job.

Had a cool old Answer hyperlite bar and oury grips. Now has a cool new moustache bar. Mounting shifters was problematic -- I didn't have any barcons to spare, and didn't want to go with stem mounted shifters. i improvised two stubby add-on bars using pieces from a set of old clamp on tri bars so I could use the original mtb shifters.

Then I finally got my hands on two matching bar end shifters.

I might want to tweak the position with a slightly higher stem, but I'll see. I'd probably also want a set of smaller, less knobby tires, too... anyway. It rides nice for now.
