Anyone got any ideas on who made these - 640mm Ti risers & 90mm Ti stem :

Both items very nicely made and dressed, the bars are surprisingly thick - compared to my Titec's and the Ti flexstem :

The stem is nicely made - compared to my Ti Titec and Ti Clark Kent.

Ignore the shim, it is a standard Titec unit that I have shortened to match the stem :D

Thanks for any input.

If it helps with the ID I have weighed them :

Bar = 293g (I said it was made from thick material !)
Stem + replacement Ti bolts and washers = 129g

The stem came with stainless steel bolts but I have no idea if these were original or not ?

Is there any sign of a seam on the inside of the bar? If there is it's probably a White Bro's.
