Very nice, :thumbsup:

That's an expensive little part there in machine time eh? 3 hours or so......
Makes it about a $300 - $400 part

1.5 hours. But yes, an expensive little part, especially when you consider the investment in machines.[/QUOTE}

Looks like the top of a flip flop stem? If so, I never would have gone to the trouble. There are people that have them in NOS for $9.95-$11.95 maybe not the right length though?

"It just dawned on me that I havent worked on any old bikes in a long while. Looks like you used an existing quill?"

What do you mean...I stamped the "MAX 22mm" line myself and ribbed the bottom expander. This is serious reproduction work. ;-)

Working on too many carbon bikes and disk brakes?

Actually, I don't own any GT's either, thus the ";-)". But I suppose it would work on a GT.

Where is such a part available NOS?
GT Flip Flop stem from 1991. They are commonly available on eBay for as little as $9.95-$15.95 but are always black. One seller has both 1" and 1-1/8" listed in his store quite often. Stop turning and start buying :)

Those are a dime a dozen too. Some of you guys need to learn to use google.
ferrule end-cap cadplate 6mm 10 pack ... $4.99 More common in motorcycle shops these days then bike shops.
There's also a ton of old Tioga 2.0mm innerwire brake cable sets out there that come with them.
