1978 Powerlite stem

This stem appears to be identical to the DG stem except the decals. It is unclear what colors this stem came in. The Everything Bicycles ad this was in shows the stem in polished aluminum.

      Wow the same Mike Rice that rode for Powerlite? Sweet. One of my buddies lived in both Pennsylvania near me, and in Washington. His name was Kim Wolfkill. So I always pulled for the Washington guys also.

        erick.. not sure who Mike Rice is but he was NEVER factory powerlite….he might have riden for a local shop where they wore powerlite jerseys etc… the early factory guys were Tommy brackens,Danny millwee, kirk chrisco,tosh muriov, Factory guys got bikes ,entry fees ,travel to nationals. etc paid for……as far as the stem thing goes.. powerlite never MADE stems in 78 ….. EVERYTHING bicycles was owned by howie cohen and was one of my dads best friends… he had overseas connections and was a big powerlite distributor… probably had them imported with the logos of a few companies , dg powerlite etc.

    I only ever saw the Sugino made Powerlite and DG stems in natural, red, blue and gold anodized. It would make sense that the natural and red were the Powerlite colors and the gold and blue were for the DG’s.
