My New Handlebars Are Coming Along

My new handlebars are coming along. They are fitted and jigged together, now I just need to clean up the tubes near the welds (so I don't choke on burnt paint), and weld them. Once they are assembled I can figure out where the push rod to the front fork will need to be.

It's hard to tell from the pictures, but the bar ends are canted up 20 degrees. Coupled with the 10 degree tilt of the fixed stem (which I still need to weld onto the frame) the hand grips will be tilted forward 30 degrees from vertical. The overall width is 28".
