Re: 1983 Skyway T/A

Would like to ask you about a pro neck inverted stem. My question is is the stem stamped pro-neck on both sides?  Thank you!  Very nice bike!

Hi, no only stamped on the topshelf which is under on an inverted stem. Do'nt think they exist stamped both sides.
Thanks for your commentary on this Skyway
