    I completely removed the only bolt (other than the quill bolt) and it won't budge...baffled.....

    loosening the bolt shown in photo 2 will loosen the handlebars.
    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes

    In your picture # 2 there a hex key bolt behind the handlebar , loosen it and you can adjust your handlebars to where you want them and tighten when you are done.
