Not exactly period correct but I do find it very top of the line.

L168, gorgeously made. Had one on my RSP but heavy and need the whole build to suit it.

Syncros cattlehead - the worst designed top cap and this poorly designed stem nice as it is.

Hence I want rid of my cattlehead.

Cattleprod is a different story now- much better

Steel I-beam club roost was cool, alloy ones are horrid tat still sitting NOS in nearly every shop's dark corners to this day (particularly their silly OS standard, 28.6?).

I think the cattleprod Syncros is a classic of function > form, brutally burly and totally reliable.
The Zooka looked great but thats about it, crack happy and expensive, but has to be a classic with those looks and enduring appeal.
A.TAC is definitely a classic, nice form, great function, little pricey but worth the coin.

Azonic Shorty is probably THE classic downhill stem, inspired hundreds of copies that never matched the original.
