I used to ride on 38 centimeter bars on my vintage Bianchi. It didn't affect the comfort or handling that much, but I certainly do prefer wider bars. I ride with 42 centimeter bars now.

Looks like a decent job - but I think you'd definitely find brake levers with hoods more comfortable, and probably safer. I bet you have trouble braking effectively unless your hands are in the drops.
