Hi,

while clearing my baseroom I found this stem which has lots of signs of a GT BMX stem from the later 80ies. The differences I can see, are: the top-cap is not stamped with the GT-logo and it has this hole for the front brake cable...sooo, can anyone name this stem? Is it a GT-BMX-stem with a self-made hole? Or is it a early, non-stamped, GT-MTB-stem?....Thanks in advance for any help...!!

Looks like a copy of a Tuff Neck Bmx stem.

Looks like a GT bmx stem but it's not stamped and really long for bmx application. The hole, presumably drilled for a front cantilever set up would also not have a bmx purpose, even in freestyle. If I would venture a guess I'd say it might be for an early gt trials bike. The steel ones they built before the aluminum zaskar looking ones. BUT that's just a guess.

:oops: edit, I googled the old GT trials bikes (ricochet) and their stem was hooked to the fork differently... Soooo, bad guess

It's a DK stem I've had hundreds of them :wink:

My first thought was DK to but I've never seen one with the drill out holes behind the wedge bolt. I've had a bunch of DKs in my day as well and the top cap definately looks DK. Maybe it's just a mix

Maybe some one drilled the hole at some point?
