I can send you my 1.1/8" recessed version if you send it back together with a new one :)

I have a 1" angled top cap but it belongs to a stem. I could send it over for the project is you cover the cost of shipping and return it.

I'll have a chat with the person possibly trying this, think it'll be our next larger ride out.
UK people would be cheaper of course.

Sadly I don't have a metal 1 inch one, but I do have a plastic one if that helps at all?

One thing I will say is that I have a couple of metal ones (silver and black), and the silver one is a much better fit on one stem than the black one, so were there differences in the top caps/stems?

Never had/seen a black one but the two silver ones came in a deep section, cast type. These in my opinion are the better ones. i.e. viewtopic.php?f=3&t=157105

The flat cap ones don't seat very well but I think are a later design.

can't help as only have a plastic recessed angled 1-1/8th however if you are successful i'll take a cnc'd one from your run gladly.

I'll pay the shipping (both ways) on my 1" if I can get a 1-1/8" repo out of the deal.
