    Oh, ok. I'm not familiar with all the abbreviations of bicycle anatomy yet.

    I don't know if it is. Bikes from the 20s and 30s had them a lot and I had one as a kid on my tricycle.

    A good quality gooseneck stem could be a sought after piece, especially if the retro racers recognize the brand. If you were to do a retro mountain bike with drop bars, that would work perfectly. Sometimes referred to as LD, or "limp Richard":giggle: stem.

    The cranks look like a German "Glockenlager". There really isn't a way to use a regular crank puller on them. They are a pain to work with! Best German board I have found is:

    Google translate will get you close, and some people are willing to answer a question in English. DeepL is a much better machine translator.

    Here is a bike that has a gooseneck clamp with a normal stem. Those bars are not going to twist.

    How do those cranks work? How are they put together?
