they're all truly elegant. if you really have your position dialed, a stem like these would be a wonderful addition to any build. kudos on the craftsmanship.

Thanks, folks.

I did a little blog post that recapped some of these photos, but with better and more concise descriptions.

Stem-a-thon!

These are all at chrome now- I'll repost when they come back. As luck would have it, of the 5 stems I think there are 3-4 different finishes.

Back to bikes for a bit!

Knocked this one out at the end of the day. Not a bad little send off.

Beautiful! It would be interesting to know what sort of tubing you use for these? Especially the long one.

Thanks-

All of these are aircraft grade 4130. The specific tube spec is tailored for the rider and their intended uses.

Thumbs up

It's so sloppy!........................................... .........................{at first}.

And somehow it then turns into a piece of art. Truly amazing work. I love how the brass blends in seamlessly after you clean it up. It is then your prep work shows up.
Great job.
