I purchased a bike with a very old restoration job and the handlebars were painted black and did not look right on the bike. I replaced the handlebars with a nice set of nickel plated cross brace bars. I was stripping a bike for a friend and decided to strip the black bars to see what the Chrome look like underneath. To my surprise, they were a camouflage green and look like military torrington's. I'm assuming they are what I think they are in World War II. Please add your two cents.
