Extended stem for steering wheel
I am looking for an extended length stem to mount a steering wheel on a custom muscle bike. The frame and fork are a 70's Schwinn Stingray Fastback unit. The bike will have a banana seat jacked up to full height, and I want the steering wheel positioned above that. I figure 18 to 22 inches would work good. The stems the low riders use for steering wheels are too low, and include a provision for handle bars, which I don't want. I remember kids running these set up's back in the day, but I can't find anything now. The wheel itself will be like the type used on muscle cars and dune buggies in the 60's, like this:
I can make something if necessary. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
