"Major Taylor" adjustable extension stem
I'm having a circa 1938 Paramount track frameset restored by Waterford, and have been shopping for components. The original Schwinn adjustable extension stems are next to impossible to find, and when they are available the asking prices are in the stratosphere.
I came across this reproduction in stainless steel for $149, and ordered one. It came today and the quality of the machining and the finish is superb.
Here's the original 1939 Schwinn version.
Science doesn't care what you believe.
