Steep quill stem

Hi all, I just bought my friends beater bike from him. I want to put a steeper quill stem on it, but am not sure what to get or even how to search for it. Anything you guys recommend? I mean something really steep.

This is what I'm talking about! But any cheaper alternatives? After all- It's a beater.

Not the prettiest, but it'll go as steep as you want.
