Remember the film Easy Rider? Ya, neither do we. But there certainly were some cool handlebars on those motorcycles. The Wald 880 handlebar screams Fonda-Hopper-coolness. Slap this bar on your bike and you can grab a piece of American classic cinema for your own personal use and enjoyment. This chrome steel bar is 23.25 inches wide, features a 1-inch clamp area (25.4 mm), and rises 10.5 inches to truly spread your wings. Enjoy the open roads and forget your worries while Wald handlebars steer you straight and true. Banana seat and sissy bar not included.

to sum it up:
our gym has 4 walls, each grade gets one wall to decorate, and only gets the schoolday to decorate, 200 dollars from school, and whatever else they gather from people. our theme is austin powers 70’s, and so we’ve got some banana seat bikes (one which is mine, not this one though, mines yellow and next to it), and allll this crazy stuff. i miiiight get a pic of the whole wall at the end of the day, but i’m not sure. i kinda doubt it. but we’ll for sure win. i’ll be sad if we don’t. its sweeeeet. all that background is 200 dollars worth of fabric pretty much.

This old tandem bike is sitting next to my aunt and uncles garage in Tracy, MN. I think it is the only tandem I have ever seen with banana seats. It is in sad shape. I have no idea who would have ever ridden it.
