Brompton modding #3886 – Chap3 with titanium S stem color coated into black

Yes, they do look almost the same, specially after we had color coated the titanium stem to a matching black color for the Chap3 Brompton. The main difference between them are just the weight now, a total of 306grams between the steel and titanium. 

The original Brompton steel S stem (with the hinge set) weight 823 grams.
 
The full titanium S stem (with the hinge set) wight 517 grams.
