good welder , will be fine
might be a good idea to heat treat it after tho

280 dec c for 2 hours ish and let it cool in air
180 deg c for 3-4 hours and quench

i realise that this may open the doors for a load of comments
but it works for me with the cranks i do

Those stems were recalled in '91 due to this problem. Might be worth replacing if just to be on the safe side.

Hi Mark ,
yes been aiming for that date to get it finished, i dont think i will have the stem done before xmas, a shame really because it does look alot better with the oversized astars bars and stem imo.
also just picked up a set of nos amber walls in 2.1 form , i will post a pic later for opinions, cheers
Lee
