Hi all,as promised here are some pics of the bargain Velocity stem I found on USA eBay.
It is 1 1/8th quill, 100mm x 15 Deg.
The seller has 5 or 6 more and was really helpful marking the box "Warranty Part" so that impot duty was avoided.
And best of all was the price...........£6.53....TOTAL........DELIVERED!!!!!!
So I wasted no time installing it on the Cinder Cone using the reversed bolts and pennies trick to fit the riser bars.
I think it looks peachy.

The reversed bolt and penny trick worked ok then? No scratches on the bars at all?

Then hats off to you bud! :D

Frame looks great in sexy black!

Yeah the reversed bolts and pennies worked well.
The standard allen bolts were too short so I replaced them with 20mm hex headed bolts..
To try and save some wieght I replaced the quill bolt and wedge with one frm a Syncros stem but the wedges are cut at different angles and so wouldn`t fit.
