My '85 Pinarello Record has a horrible stem on it. It clashes with the aesthetics tremendously and I'd like to change it out for a quill based, Pinarello pantographed stem.
Lucky for me, the current stem has a 2-bolt face plate which makes pulling the bars simple. The hard part is getting a "new" stem back on which would require removing the tape/brake levers/cabling from one side of the bars. If I was planning on replacing them, that wouldn't be a problem, but I have no desire to remove all of that if I don't have to, since it is working and looking perfect.
My question is, does anyone know of a Pinarello stem that was in the transition zone of clamp style and face bolted that isn't carbon or painfully modern looking?
My goal is to eventually get something more period appropriate, like this, but not until I am forced to remove all of the elements off the bars.
