I am a huge fan of the bikes that the Bratstyle and Gravel-Crew guys are turning out in Japan. The bratstyle website has some handlebars that I really like a lot, but like most people in the english speaking world I have had no luck contacting them. I guess I am just looking for a little advice on a similar bar set. Here are the bratstyle bars:

The only info that I could decipher is that they are 750mm wide and 80mm high. That's about 29.5 inches wide, 3.15 inches high. No info on the pullback unfortunately. To me these look like daytona style bars.

I found some bars that I think look very much the same and I'd just like to see what everyone else thinks.
It's the bars that are labeled C34 in the image at the top. Scrolling down the page you can see that they are 29.5 inches wide and 3 inches high. Looks to be the same bars to me, but it's hard to tell about the pullback. What do you think? Maybe the center is wider on the flanders bar too. Can't tell.

They are also about $100. If anyone knows of a place to get bars like this for less, I'd be happy to hear about it. I see similar daytona bars with a marginally smaller rise at Mikes, but the flanders bars come in black finish. If I could get them in black straight away and not have to deal with painting them it would be a huge plus.

Those bratstyle bars look like euro bars to me. Really similar to the daytonas but less pull back and narrower in the centre. The euro bars 'droop' down a bit at the ends when mounted, like that photo.

Flanders are the quality choice if you have the bucks. I ended up buying a set of euros at the local indie shop, approx $30cad. I think they were labelled Emgo, decent quality. If you ride your bike to the shop, you can sit on the bike with them and get an idea of your riding position. The amount of pullback will affect how far forward you are leaned. Dirt track bars are cool too, but are wider.

I'm using Biltwells on my Brat bike. Very similar and not that expensive. I got mine from www.lowbrowcustoms.com .

I believe Rice Paddy has some superbike/Euro style bars in black for a budget price. Check them out.
