Check the diameters on the clamps - I bet you have a stoker clamp off an old Schwinn tandem. The Paramount alloy slider measures 7/8" for the stem clamp and 1" for the bars.
And use your real name Mr. Bongiovi, er, Bongiorno . . . whatever. Step "out of the closet" and acknowledge that you (SHUDDER) like OLD BIKES . . . ! It isn't the social suicide you might fear. It is 2006, after all. Just keep it low-key and no one will be the wiser.
