Stem size on old Raleigh mountain bike (Crested Butte)

Hey all,

I recently purchased an old Raleigh Crested Butte Mountain Tour. Parted some stuff off it, including the bullmoose bars, which I sold. I wanted to put drops on the bike, but a 22.2 stem seems too big. Anyone know if the stem size is 22.0 or .8333? There is competing info on the forums from a search I did. I started to sand/ file a 22.2 stem for it, just wanted to make sure I'm not going to end up sanding it into nothingness.

The bars said their stem size, but I deleted the pictures from my listing already.

Thanks.

21.1 / .833 should work if 22.2 doesn't.
