    anyone got a quill stem, late 70s early 80s would be ideal as I need it for an old frame and want to keep the retro look.

    Needs to take a 26mm bar and not too long a reach or drop

    thanks

    Yes, I've got two in my box of bits. I'll get them out tonight and take photos then PM them to you. I think one's even got a pulley wheel for the front brake cable!

    I have one or two that may fit if RR's isn't appropriate.

    It's a Kona Velocity stem in good working order but a bit scruffy. I have put my email address in your private message box, if you email me I will send you a picture.

    It IS 1" or 25.4mm! Bar is 26mm.

    However the distance from stem centre to bar centre is quite long - 125mm. Is this too long for you?

    I see you're in Manchester - we are in Blackburn and could come to meet you this weekend.

    looks a little too long, thanks anyway. I kind of wanted one like the photo above with a slight drop.
