General Information
From what research I have been able to do, this appears to be from the same era as the Shimano AX groups, and the early years of the Aerodynamic movement in cycling.  Nitto also made an "Aerodynamic" bar which I'm fairly certain is also on VeloBase which these stems were often paired with.  I have also seen these pantographed with a couple of different Japanese builder's names, including 3Rensho.  This example was on eBay recently with a starting bid of $200, however received no bids and was relisted by the seller.
