Subject: [CR] FS: Belleri "Porteur" Bar & Stem Combo

Hi Gang, Offered for sale to The List is a Belleri "Porteur" bar and stem combo. I believe these bars to be new and unridden, though there are some scratches inside of one bend from stem insertion. These likely came from the stock that Velo Orange was selling a couple of years back. 47mm c-to-c, 25.0 clamp, if I remember correctly. They are hung on a fairly clean Belleri stem which could benefit from a good polishing. "Belleri" in script on the front of the stem and a "Made in France" sticker with French flag around the quill/insertion area. 90mm in length, 22.0 (French) quill diameter. **NOTE** There is, unfortunately, a slight bend on this stem. When installed on a bike, the bars are a degree or two out of level. Not enough to bother me on a "rider" and next to impossible to see in a photo, but the buyer should be aware of it. Probably not gonna work on your Herse porteur restoration... **Again, full disclosure:** I can't find any info online about what Velo Orange was selling these for, so my pricing might be off base. Should you have an interest and feel that my asking price is too high, please feel free to make me an offer that you find more appropriate. I'm asking $65 shipped USPS in the ConUS. iPhone pic if'n you'd like.
