Transition period for Pinarello quill stems?

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.

Current Stem Shot:

Yes, correct, and 3TTT made a few as well. The same question above applies to any of the stems that had Pinarello pantographing.

What size are your bars? Nothing "transitions" from what you want to what you have. You can either go old school, or, and this I think would look better than what you have, get a modern stem with a 1" raiser for you fork.

Just pull the tape off...swap and re-tape...1/2 job.

Do you have a Pinarello panto'd Cinelli 1A or 3TTT???

I run an XA on my '89 Treviso FWIW...

Good point. I too think that a raiser/modern stem would look better than the Profile Design I have on the bike now. Any suggestions on old school'ish looking stems that would attach to a raiser?

I do not. I haven't dropped the cash for one because I knew it would be quite some time before I made the swap. I figured it was time to do some initial investigation.

The VO polished stems are probably your best bet if you're gonna do the threadless thing...

Or you could get a 3ttt evol 2002 like this and have somewhat classic styling and ease of a hinged stem design. 85mm reach too

Bingo. That's exactly what I'm talking about. The best of both worlds (somewhat period appropriate styling with a bolted faceplate). The same goes for the Deda quill.
Thanks guys. Does anyone else know of any other higher end quill stems out there known that would fit this mold (so I have some options to choose from)?

I'm only finding the Cinelli Frog's in chrome/black (I'd rather have all chrome) plus they seem just a touch too modern for me, but, thank you for the suggestion! Keep 'em coming.

I used to have one of those in 90 mm reach. I regret selling it b/c I've never seen a pic of it again until now. What's the reach?
