Question Need Help Finding A Valve Stem

I have some 2004/2005 era Kenesis wheels with an unusual valve stem and I'm looking for help finding some replacements. Kenesis has changed hands and the current company is zero help.

The entire length of the stem is threaded and the entire length is the ~7.5mm diameter of the threaded end of a typical stem. There is no shoulder at the base of the stem and the hole in the wheel is ~7.5mm.

A motorcycle stem won't work because they use an O-ring seal and mine needs a rubber grommet.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

That sounds like a Speedline set I sold recently.

I have 2 7.5mm but they have a 14mm external collar.

I got a lead from TireRack that a BBS stem might work, Googled it and found this one on ebay: BBs Metal Valve Stems Part 09 15 036 | eBay

That's it...if I could only find them in the US.
