General Information
I've never seen a cast aluminum stem like this one before. The casting quality and workmanship is much better that the standard cast aluminum "death stems" from the Bike Boom era. It's very light weight. I'd be hesitant to use this stem because of the thin wall casting with a hole that goes all the way through the horizontal section.

Kurt Sperry: "DFV seems to be an initialism for "Dauphinoise de Fabrication Vélocipedique" who along with Mondius were one of two small companies that later in c. 1955 combined to form the Lyonnais firm ATAX."
