Handlebar clamp

Hello, someone stole my handlebars and clamp. I bought a replacement 25.4mm handlebar but am having trouble finding the back of the clamp. Any suggestions? Tried a few LBS but no luck

Unless you find a broken stem I don’t think you’re going to find that part separately

Unrelated, but that’s an amazing stack height, and is that stem facing back toward the saddle?

Yeah, a new stem is in order, but that one seems particularly specific to this bike, whatever it is.

Thanks everyone. Was hoping that wouldn't be the only solution. The stem is frozen to the frame :/
It's forward facing, was just turned around for the picture

Oh, man, that sucks. For someone to steal the handlebar, that's pretty low. They could at least have screwed the clamp back on, it's not like they could use it.

I'm sure you can get someone to make one for you, either CNC or 3-D printing. Something tells me it's not worth it.

Cut it off and replace the poorly fitting fork while you're at it.

I've had good luck getting stuck stems out of the steerer by applying plenty of torch heat, then allowing to fully cool before again attempting to twist the stem out.

It's the lengthwise expansion that breaks the bond, and I apply penetrant as the stem cools near to a merely warm temperature.
