    Silver Aluminium, heavier then it looks, TG I'd use it!

    No idea, the JG might be a clue. Looks homemade to me, i.e. made as a one off in a small shop, not mass produced. Square edges and chunky look give it away.

    I thought that it could actually be one of those Newton prototypes that CT made, but the JTG gives it away.

    Who is/was JTG? I couldn't find much info. Is it a trials stem, or MTB? Thanks for the help

    I googled JG, I don't think it's JTG, and needless to say nothing popped up. Could be a home made thing, or a one off, or such a low volume that it doesn't register.

    The height and reach might indicate a trials stem. It would be limited to a flat bar given it doesn't have a removable face plate to allow a riser.

    I also thought the first letter could be a "D". There was a BMX manufacturer, DG, or Dan Gurney, but they went out of action prior to the threadless headset era, so I really doubt it was something they made.

    Until someone comes up with a lead on it, I'm guessing it is a one-off. How did you come by it? Like, was it on a bike, in a box of random parts you bought from a yard sale, fell from an aircraft?

    This beauty came from a box of random stuff I got from a shop. It is totally weird and homemade looking, but figured the logo would be more of a tell. It's always fun going through those boxes - you never know what you'll get...I did find a cool 1" ibis ahead crmo stem, some tri-aligns, etc. Thanks for your help
