    Here are 4 of the handles 'in process' but it shows what they look like. The bend is 'hard part' #1, hard part #2 is machining a 45 deg V into the small bolt pads.

    The goal with this whole cost-reducing exercise is pretty common - make them cheap enough that people look at them and say, "I could make those. But I won't bother...."

    Make from solid in a press brake?- Bam, one hit done?

    Make from smaller diameter tube (3/4) easily with a handbender and after powdercoating slide a piece of silicone hose over the tube to make a nice grip and bring to comfy size?

    Make from 3/4" solid in press brake and do same as above?

    The finished handles have grips, aka bicycle grips. The 1" diameter it only a bit larger than the standard handlebar so the grips fit well. I ordered some Woolf bends (4) to see if I like them. Still a bit pricy...$50 for 4 plus 'mystery' shipping charge.

    why not just have someone bend those tubes?
    sure it would need to be mandrel bent, but that would be a hell of alot easier then grinding smooth.

    or get a normal bender and fill/cap the tubes with ice or sand. trim to length and done.

    or if its just a handle, skip all the bending, weld a piece of 1"flat stock to set the height onto to a straight tube. done.
