Too bad about replacing stem. Those "racer,clubman" bars make such a statement. I remember having this bike's twin as a kid(NEW!) when all my buds had Stingrays. Fastest bike in the neighborhood! lol

This bike is so much fun to ride. The stem that was on it when I bought it was a one piece bar stem combo and it's in very poor shape. I still have it along with the original rear wheel. I was planning on getting them in better shape and putting them back on.
