Olde aluminium likes to do that sometimes. I'm a bit paranoid when I get a "new" old bike, not knowing what it's been through, so I swap out bar, stem and seatpost, in that order, as soon as I can.

Pretty sweet bike. If the stem clamp diameter is 25.4mm and the grip diameter is 22.2mm then you should be able to find some similar MTB riser bars fairly easily. Even if the grip diameter isn't 22.2 your brakes might be able to clamp down that much, will have to experiment.

They basically look like about 3" (65-75mm) risers with a fair amount of sweep that have been rotated back quite a bit.
