Drawing up plans and dims for a stem today



Have a word with Danson67, he seems to be the king of making pace stem/steerers:

then went over it with some course wire wool, this may take some time haha. not expecting mirror finsih quality when its done but a really nice respectable shine would be great. next month ill get the decals and paint the forks, stem/steerer (maybe) and cranks.

Steady haha. The frames been fine wire wooled and polished with autosol but I still want it a bit nicer so gonna wet flat the main areas I’ll see and polish again. Decals should be collected next month from Gil at the cropton ride and I’ll match the forks cranks and stem to the decal colour. Hopefully getting the stem dimensions to Dan next Saturday as well.
