MTB handlebar stem on Vintage road bike

Not sure about posting here but maybe someone can link me to a thread that will help. Anyway, raced triathlons back in the day (30 years ago), had a 1987 Centurion Ironman which I installed Scott DH aero bars on. In order to get in what then was a proper aero position we put mtb handlebar stems on. After I quit riding the bike I donated the bike to charity (regrettable now). Fast forward to today, I recently purchased the same bike on Ebay, searched high and low for the Scott DH bars (which I finally found) and now am in the process of making this into the bike I had. My question is, does anyone recall the mtb stems used back then (trying to make the bike as original vintage as possible) and if not, could a regular modern stem be installed and work safely?
