I recently purchased an old Columbia tandem bicycle off of Ebay. Unfortunately, the stoker stem was in bad shape and the stoker handlebars have fallen off. The stem is broken clean in half and it doesn't look like there is any way to repair it.
Are there any websites that sell cheap used tandem parts? I am just looking for some cheap stoker handlebars with the stem. After extensive googling I have only found some very expensive handlebars that are made for new tandems.
I have some old solo bikes that I don't use at all. Is there anyway that I could butcher their handlebars and use something else as a stem to attach it? Or would it be way too much trouble?
