I've seen pantographed stems come up once or twice, but they went for big money.

i will post these days
i don't like the fork at all, looks thick
the bike is kinda heavy
i think the frame itself isn't the sexiest thing, but the group is treasure
i think i will look for a straight chromed fork

sorry for the quality of the photos, the light wasn't enough
i am thinking to sell it, because the frame is dissapointingly heavy for my expectancies. the group is divine though. and i can't broke it into pieces to keep what i need, that's blasphemic. i also have a black 3ttt stem(not pantographed though) that would suit the body.

Have you ridden it? Because deciding not to keep it because it's too heavy without checking out the ride first doesn't make a ton of sense.

the ride is nice, never had a group so good, but the frame is kind of thick and bulky(i can feel it when i am taking the stairs to my apartment)
i will make some fine tunings, i will change the stem and i will see
i'm tempted by the price i could get on it and by the fact that a friend of mine could help me buy a nice steel that would satisfy me perfect, again, on a good price.

Sell it if you will, but it may be difficult to beat this one for character, details, and performance.

Low weight can cost "big-time" if you aren't careful.

I'd stop worrying about the weight and ride the bike for a season before you give up.
