I know you spell Tires tyres in the UK but I didn't realize mountain was spelled a different way?

It's a custom stem I had made by Wes Williams (Willits Brand) when the bike was new.

Titanium
1-1/8" Quill style
~6.5" rise, ~3.5" reach (or ~53deg, ~150mm)
Bar clamp is 25.4mm with scalloped cutouts on the underside to allow the curved bar to slide in without having to spread to clamp too much.

my own take on it:

I did have to change back to 'town bike bars' to get a position that allowed a front child seat.

edit: yeah, not at all retro, but I can't figure out how to delete the post so there you have it.
