If your bars were bent this much would it be noticeable?

If the rest of the bike was as twisted as the bars then you'd probably not notice. no

If the rest of the bike was straight then I think it would be quite noticeable. I would hope that a prudent buyer would check for straightness before shelling out. confuse

I had a 1960 Triumph T110 that was cobbled by my late brother before I inherited it.

The handlebars on that were twisted for 11 of the 12 years I had it. I only noticed when I put new bars on before selling it.  smile

I did a canny few miles on it, but it truly was a cobbled bike. RIP aww

As Martyn suggests, you can get used to bars or forks being out of line. I have had the situation where it took a bike swap on a trail ride to be told my forks were twisted!

My guess is that now you know the bars are bent you will indeed notice it cry
