Nic,

Nice work, thanks for sharing. I used to use A. Hague bits (in the late 70s), and your web page reminded me I have a 2-page black-and-white brochure from that era, describing their custom handlebar stem making system. I scanned it and you are welcome to add it to your website if you see fit.

Those above are about 600 x 800 pixels and a reasonably small quick download. I also put the full-size (300 dpi) scans up, in case anyone needs it bigger. They're 4 times as tall and wide, about 1 MB each (so, still not too terribly big):

He describes the profits to be made with a custom stem business (!?), and describes the building process in some detail.
