Graveyard T.I. Bars
« on: October 06, 2012, 11:14:45 PM »
I have some Graveyard T.I. bars just collecting dust in my garage. My friend looked them up and seen them on sell for $150 and 175$ on other sites. Mine is chrome and decal-less. Anyone have a good estimate on how much it's worth or worthless? What's your opinion on them: ugly, great, terrible good bars or not?

Hi,
in my opinion it is a great bar when someone is looking for a small bar (I guess it is 6", isn't it?). I have always liked the design. The strength is beyond doubt. In my opinion the value depends on if it is uncut or not and how good the paint/chrome is.
If you do not need the money I would recommend to put in on the wall in your living room. It is a true classic and a part of flatland history. Think about Rich...
I have a Graveyard OG and would not sell it, even though I prefer a higher handlebar today.

the graveyard o.g is like 8", plenty high when paired with the high-neck quamen stem.

there are construction differences when you compare the pre-production (higher crossbar), mid-school and later versions (griptubes are shorter, have more upsweep and narrower clamp area).

anyone here have the black nickel-plated limited edition o.g bars? or the 7" johnston bars (taller version of the martti bars)?
 
i stand corrected: mid school og.s are indeed 7.1" high; but still stand by what i said about pairing og bars with quamen high neck stem and being high enough for most.

Hi,
I have got several OG bars (I would say the "mid-school" version, without any upsweep) and they are definitely 18 cm = 7.1" high (center to center).
I had a T.I. in my hands to compare. As far as I remember it was about 1" lower.

I used to have the black nickel-plated OG bars and I regret selling them.  I still have a pair of black TI bars that I will never get rid of.

I still have a set of black T.I.'s on my old Quamen.  If I ever get rid of them, it will be a long time from now.
