Over the last decade I've been putting a couple of NOS Sweet Stems on ebay each year. I really hate using Ebay so I thought I'd ask and see if anyone were interested in acquiring the rest of them as a lot. About a decade ago I acquired all the remaining NOS Sweet wings, Sweet stems, and prototypes that they had. These are the last of them. As a side note, almost all of the NOS cranks were stolen several years ago (so don't ask about those). I'm keeping a few stems and most of the prototypes but here is what I have available as a lot.

Typically on Ebay these have sold for $125-$175 USD depending on fit. If anyone wants the lot it's $1200 with free shipping (yes even international.) That's about $70 USD per stem for all 17.

I'm also going to include a couple hundred of the plastic caps for these, most of them are purple which was the stock color but there are some blue, red and black ones as well. In the past these have gone for about $5 each.

I also have the 2nd prototype quill stem that was made for testing as well I have a fixture which has 3 different versions of their removable faceplate stem welded onto one plate, it was used for destructive testing. I may be inclined to sell one or both of these with the lot.

Here are stem sizes.

For 25.4 Handlebar, 1-1/8" Quill
120mm, +10 degree, Qty: 1
135mm, 90 degree, Qty: 1
135mm, +10 degree, Qty: 1
150mm, +10 degree, Qty: 1

For 25.4 Handlebar, 1" threadless
120mm, 90 degree, Qty: 1
150mm, 90 degree, Qty: 1

For 26.0 Handlebar, 1" Quill
100mm, 90 degree, Qty: 1
120mm, 90 degree, Qty: 3
125mm, 90 degree, Qty: 2
130mm, 90 degree, Qty: 3
140mm, 90 degree, Qty: 2

I assume 25,4 for mountain versus 26,0 for road barclamp?
Are you not inclined to sell the stems seperately?
Would definitely be interested in 1 or 2, but not the lot :( (the 120mm 1 1/8 quill jumps into my eye...)

I might be interested in one, but worried about rust as they do not seem to have any additional protective layer, would you please comment on that?

still only for sale as a lot?
I would take the 120mm 1 1/8 quill and the 1" threadless 100mm immediately if you sell for similar money.
The lot will be very difficult to sell...

Would love to take one if that is possible:

Road: For 26.0 Handlebar, 1" Quill, 100mm, 90 degree, Qty: 1

Would be happy to pay a more ebay'ish price for it.
