Hi Sean I think I might have one but it will need repainting. It's complete and the shortest flip flop I have ever seen. It's 0 degree rise as well and in black.

I too have a NOS 130mm one, I don't have long arms but I find any less than 120mm on a retro frame leaves me far too bunched up.

Have you tried a longer stem for fit?

I've tried every variation from 80 to 130mm and anything more than 100mm is a stretch

Fair do's, good luck sourcing.
Tioga did a fairly similar (but alloy) integrated pinch bolt version, may be worth trying to track one of those down too?

Sounds like the second version alchemy stem, I'll keep an eye out. 90s stems that aren't super long are hard to find
