Shadow "Bull Bars"

Recommended Posts

One of my Vintage Cruiser Bud's just sent me Pic's of Bars he found.

I searched..he searched...and all we found was UK info.

 

are these UK bars?

Radbmx showed a Price List from 1984 of Shadow Bull Bars..and radbmx showed a 83 TA with

Shadow Bull bars..but I couldn't see the bend in the Rad Photo( side shot of the Bike only )

 

from what I gather..they are Shadow Bull Bars,

??????

any thoughts,

 

cool Bends on em hey!

CW bars with a powerlite bend? dude those are kind of cool.

Shadow if I remember right was a CW made bike if that has anything to do with'em those would be really rare and cool.

Pistol Pete rode a Shadow for a short time.

Your are real Bull Bars, they are the same as the bottom set in the pic. I posted. The other set I think may be a later version, I'm still not sure. They were made by CW in 83 or 84 I belive but it may have been a little later.

I also had 2 sets...one had the cross hatch knurling, the other had the split (knockoff look) knurling.... Brett i think you are right with one set being early, the other being later...like maybe when the CW shakers came out??? I remember the cross hatch were wider and taller, and the other were almost expert sized. i will have to dig out sum pics.

 

I always liked riding power bends....they just felt cool!!!

Just for info.

Shadow also made another style of Bull Bars, I had a co-sponsorship deal with them bitd.

This is what the other style looks like, they didn't have the power bend in them.
