Subject: [CR]"GEM" Handlebar Tape...?

Hi folks,

In digging around the back room of a LBS, I came across a couple of boxes of some old-lookin' "GEM" brand English-made handlebar tape. It appears to be made of vinyl, and I thought it may be cool on an older English bike. Is anyone familiar with this stuff, and anyone know the vintage? http://www.duane.kennard.com/gemtape/gemtape1.jpg http://www.duane.kennard.com/gemtape/gemtape2.jpg As always, thanks for your help! Cheers,
