Working on MTB/Cruiser Hybrid
So as the title says...I have an old Raleigh M60 my dad wants to ride but he wants Ape handlebars on it.
First Issue, the stems I have are typical 4 bolt and the ape bars do not fit. Do I need to convert to quill? The ape bars are Electra Mini Ape but if I can avoid converting to quill I'd be good.
Second issue, if I do convert what parts do I need so the stem doesn't look ugly sticking out of the steerer tube?
So am I creating the impossible and is the conversion as simple as putting the quill stem into the steerer tube (sounds too simple)?
Would just having the rear brake be ok (adding rear disc brakes is an option)?
