Just got a unbelievably beautiful nos VGS stem.
Its very thin and elegant. One is not used to such proportions!!
I put zooka next to it and otherwise thin and clean design of Zooka suddenly seems very different :) (fat and unfinished :D )
I would probably never dared riding it hard in the woods, even BITD. But it doesnt matter, sometmes is good to elevate yourself above all the boring function and create something ultimate.
If im not mistaken these "last generation" Stems were availible around 93 for quite short time. They r very rare.
So far on the internet i was able to track down pictures of just 4 different pieces.
One from CBR catalogue with geckos,
this one,
One on the BikePro webside
and
fourth in the picture on somebodys merlin

Yeah. its 150mm, but it looks longer because of its thinness. :)
