This is a new OLD STOCK stem We have had it for many years and it does not look as good as it once did, but it looks almost as good as it ever did. It has a rust spot about 1/2" wide inside the clamp where it cannot be seen when the stem is on the bicycle. There is a place on the nut where some of the silver color is gone. It has several small scratches from rubbing against other parts in a box.
The brand is WALD. It is made of chromed steel. This kind of stem came on new Huffy, Murray, and Roadmaster bicycles several years ago.
The length of the long part that goes into the steerer is a out 4 1/2". The manufacturer says the diameter of that long part is 21.1 mm. I measured it and got 20.9 mm diameter.
The clamp is for handlebars that have a one inch diameter center. Please measure to be sure. Some handlebars have a 7/8" diameter center, and this stem will not fit those handlebars.
The diameter of the quill is 21.1 mm or about 13/16". Many of the older bicycles have this diameter stem. Most bicycles have a stem diameter that is larger that 21.1 mm and this stem will NOT fit those bicycles. Please measure the diameter of your stem and the diameter of the center of your handlebar to see if this stem will fit.
>> HOW TO MEASURE THE DIAMETER OF YOUR HANDLEBAR STEM:
Close the jaws of an adjustable wrench around your old stem. Then, measure the distance between the jaws of the wrench. A more accurate way to measure the diameter is to cut a strip of paper that will wrap around your stem exactly. In other words, the length of the strip of paper will be the same as the circumference of your stem. Measure the length of the strip of paper and divide that length by 3.14. The number you get will be the diameter of the stem. If the circumference of your stem is 66.25mm, then the diameter is 21.1mm. If the circumference of your stem is 69.7mm, then the diameter is 22.2mm. If the circumference of your stem is 79.756mm, then the diameter is 25.4mm or 1". Most stems have a diameter of either 21.1mm or 22.2mm.
