    A lot of those chain rings had the holes for a pie plate. As a matter of fact a lot of big tank Huffmans with that ring also have the holes and they most certainly never used a pie crust guard. Go back to that Nostagic.net page and read the last two sentences of the write-up Dave did about restoring this bike--which is the same bike Mike (prewarbikesforsale) shows above. If you really want to learn about Five Bars go to the "ARTICLES" tab at the top of this page and read the Five Bar Article. V/r Shawn

    Ok, so since we have all the 5 bar guys rounded up in one spot.

    I'm looking into getting the dual position bars made, exact replicas or nothing. This would only be a limited number.

    I don't have an exact dollar amount on the price yet, but would like to get an idea on how many people might be interested.

    So far I have about 5 So-Cal guys interested. Message me if interested.

    Was there an actual Hawthorne badged 5Bar? From what I've seen, the tankless Hawthorne Twin Bars were the only ones offered with the Pie crust guard. Please correct me if I am wrong. Not trying to muddle up this thread, but as Shawn mentioned they are different bikes than the 5 bar being discussed here.
