**** A LITTLE UPDATE ****
Now stripping the bike to get ready to send to Jonrock for paint, and after discovering the stem bolt had snapped on the thread, i reckon due to the previous owner overtighting.
I have tried to source a new quill and bolt but to no luck, one company quoting me 4 pound per bolt but i had to order a hundred of them
The beutiful thing about owning a CNC machine shop was to get my employees to make one!!
So quill made, as the bolt snapped inside and I tired everything to remove it, and also under inspection the quill had a split in it.
So onto a CNC lathe followed by fixturing onto the CNC mill. Job done, now need to make the stem bolt, which will be on the machines this week.
Picture of the old quill:
New quill in place:

I also now have full XT groupset, and wheels built, all is waiting now for the paint and job done! cant wait
