I would say mid-school. I have a different version of that stem that came on a White Bear mini.

Yup Oxcart there Brett. I have one myself. I could be wrong but I am pretty sure they were a Colorado company. Wheatridge or something like that.

DMG-

Your stem is a STUDD mini. Probably around 1986.
STUDD was started by Bill Green from Miami of Boystown & Flying Wheels fame. First product was a "quick change" sprocket. Used Timmy Judge in full page ads. The pro stem had an adjustable length. They even had a few frames built by Cyclecraft.

I can't imagine there being too many of thrm around, especially outside FLA. Where did you find it and on what kind of bike?

Looks like a recycled esp to me... after it cracked at the corners like most did.

It kind of looks like a Galindo stem from the early-mid 80's.

:bravo: Revcore got it, its a very hard to find Galindo stem from 83-84. Here is a better pic of one, the one I have I found on a Hutch Judge about 10 years ago and now is on my NOS Procraft. :)

I like ID'ing old school and mid school parts....Mainly because I used to own so much stuff BITD. I guess you could say I live on memories now(And pics/stories on forums such as this).
I never owned a Galindo stem but I did own an Oxcart stem a few years ago and it was one of the best stems I've owned besides the DK and Profile stems.
