Thanks for the inspiration @ John, Diesel.  I just took these off ebay.  I have old style 26mm bars from a 1984 Dawes Galaxy.  Not sure why the description says "Standard" 26mm.  Is standard not 31.8mm these days?  Never owned a bike made after the 80s.

If they are too long I intend to cut them back.

Have just gotten home, broken out the calipers, and seen the error in my ways...

May soon be a pair up for sale. Let me know if interested.

Edit: may have found a solution

Have one of these waiting to be installed; but I do think a 'normal' quill stem is more attractive.

Black though.

Nice find. Black though indeed. But to be fair will match my new aero bars....

Well I have ordered some Cinelli Spinaci Light which weigh in at 190g.   They are new old stock (NOS) and were 34 euros delivered.   So worth a try out and bit cheaper than the modern options.

Do you think these mini-bars fit your image though, Phil?

They will when I add a beer glass and real ale pump to them.
