Is this the type you mean...I love those tires on the bike! Really looks good!
As for the stem, I have never liked the backward stems, they just look... well... backward to me. Just my opinion though.
What about a stem with almost no offset. I tried to find a picture and couldn't, but there are vintage stems that the quill bolt also tightens the handle bar clamp. They look cool, wish I had a picture of one for you to see.
Funny you should mention that I found one at a local swap meet last weekend
The one on the left is closest to what I was referring to. Too bad it wouldn't fit the fork.Funny you should mention that I found one at a local swap meet last weekend
however it is to wide for the rattrap springer
So i was going to maybe try the middle version
but it also is too wide for the rattrap
the far right i had gotten of either a prewar elgin or snyder bucycle
I like how it the extension is low then kicks up
might work backwards because of that design feature
but need to loosen up the bolt to see how it looks on the bike
