1970's Takara Road Bike

Dumpstered drop handlebars from a rusted Raleigh -- large handbrake -- unknown stem

Stock Fork (too narrow for my hub) -- not so good Shimano Caliper Brake

Alex RP15F Rim 700c -- Kenda Kontender Tire -- Quando Front Hub

Alex RP15F Rim 700c -- Kenda Kontender Tire -- Quando Rear Hub

Unknown 110mm BCD 5 bolt cranks -- Unknown chainring -- Shimano sealed bottom bracket

Serfas Saddle -- Unknown Seat Post

Unknown Pedals -- Soma Oppy X Double Gate Toe Clips -- Zefal Mt. Christophe nylon straps -- 1/8' BMX Chain

Rockwerks 1/8' Cog -- 44x17 gear ratio

This is my first fixed gear bike, and my first real bicycle since my early teens. I bought if off of craigslist (original listing image is above) and have changed some stuff up. All and all it's only cost me 0, which is really nice.

Shining up handlebars

I just got a Takara at a thrift star. Frame is in nice condition but handlebars and components need some work. How do you get the handle bars polished up like that?
