Tom Ward asked about Nitto stems:

"....... they have been of casual interest to me on a "keeper of the flame" level--i.e. they are a relatively cool item that is still being manufactured. I have two questions about the Technomic in particular. Does anyone know when (to the year) it appeared, and has the logo (model name) always had the same appearance? In other words, are the ones you can buy now essentially the same as they ever were? A well-known purveyor of parts has it that it's been around "for decades", but that's not very specific. Three decades? Or only two?....."

There is a Nitto (not a Technomic) on my 1977 Fuji Newest and it is original (Nitto bar as well).
