    It looks like Iver Johnson used the Claus Expansion stem and bars on their Medium Grade Roadster or someone replaced the bars and stem on the one I posted above with Claus bars and stem.

    Kraut~ the 18" set here looks to be the non expansion type I'm gathering these require a collar to fit into an early headset?

    Here is half a set of Kelly's I believe are the earlier type that require a collar; seeking insight:

    You are correct. After the crown nut is secured a portion of the fork tube is protruding and is split for a clamp to secure the stem.

    Cyclehobo some of your attachments are missing, the one i see does look like the stem that uses a collar, where should it say Kelly? Could it have been on a part that is missing?
