    Help me identify this odd looking (vintage ?) chromoly alt bar

    This thing has been laying around for awhile now. Thought I'd mount it up and try it out. Does anyone happen to know who made this bar ? I've never seen anything else like it. The letters G & P are printed at the end of the bar along with a logo that has 'JC' in the middle of it. It's chromoly, reasonably light, and about 25+ inches long. Sorry for the lousy pics, best I can do.

    There's also a serial number of sorts printed on the end of the bar. It reads - 04 - 10

    Even the cat is not sure what to think...

    Crap! Please recycle so the material can be used for something useful!

    Something useful. A bar in hand is better than one on the ground...

    I don't know that I'll do any hard riding on this bar but the position is interesting. It definitely feels different than my Salsa 17 degree sweep bar. Glad I found this thing, I can check out a bar with even more sweep than 17 degrees without having to drop much $.

    In case anyone's wondering, there are 2 computers on the bar because I was trying to make sure one of them actually worked and needed another speedometer to compare it to.

    Without your computers on there those could have a nice little aero position for the ride to your trailhead.
