making a stem, pt. ii

I finished up the finish work on this stem the other day. It's all shiny and smooth and ready for color. Or at least ready for the rest of the frameset and the rack to be built, and all of it to get sent off to the painter at the same time. Excited about this project. I love the way a custom stem and rack will tie the bike together in a cohesive way.
