Anyone have a pointer to a picture of a vintage handlebar mount water

I have been unable to find a vintage model to buy, so I am thinking
of making one...but I'm having trouble with the conceptual part and
I am hoping to get some hints.

Thanks,

Go to the Brooks homepage and select the News & Events menu. Then
select L'Eroica. It is the old bikes and costumes ride in Italy.
Brooks sponsors it. There are pictures on the Brooks page which show
many pictures of the handlebar mounted water bottles. One is a
closeup.

This is the official website for L'Eroica. It has pictures too. Do a
Google search on L'Eroica and you should be able to turn up more
pictures of handlebar mounted cages.

There's a good reason for not using a handlebar mounted bottle as
those of us who have used them know. Road shock of a typical divot in
a road will easily eject the bottle, especially from the kind of
holder pictured. It might be fine on a museum bicycle, but don't
expect much utility from it in use.

That is right, but many of them were held in place by metal straps
closed with a lever, and these could resist most jolts -- of course the
corks would occasionally come out.

_ I've had pretty good luck with tacx bottles and holders on my
handlebar mount. Other water bottles and holders worked okay, but
they made a lot of noise. The TacX bottles are slightly bigger
in diameter and the cage has a rubber gasket to hold them
securely.

Nice bike, Tom. I used to have a bottle cage just like that.

Thanks David,
That was years ago, and since then I sold the bike. It was voted best
fixedgear one year which helped with the sale of the bike. Brandt is right
about the bottle mounted on the handlebar, rattles a lot, especially with
the metal bottles and I can see how it could get dislodged.
