    It's lovely, but it's so expensive I'm surprised Trump doesn't slap a tariff on it.

    Looks like an instrument of torture to me.

    I was chatting to a chap at a recent vintage event ride. He had a Pashley Guvnor with this item fitted. He also had the aluminium bottles from the same vendor.
    Looked great but rattled like a sh1thouse door on a trawler.

    If you fancied the bottles fentiger I can recommend a source of some cheaper stainless steel bottles.
     
  8. It follows the ebay unwritten law: If it's got 'eroica' in the name then double the price.

    Thanks. I'm dithering at the moment. I'm building up a bike on a nice Rotrax frame I acquired recently. Trying to decide whether to go for the double handlebar mount cage in the OP, or to drill & rivnut the frame for a single cage.
    Could you send me the link for the S/S bottles please?

    Why not just have a clamp on bottle cage on the down tube? You could put helicopter tape on first, if you were worried about damaging the paint.

    Thanks for your suggestion :thumbsup:
    I tried that method on another bike. I nipped the clamp up so as not to damage the helicopter tape, but in use the clamp shifted so i tightened it more.
    The helicopter tape puckered and looked rubbish. Peeled the tape off, which unfortunately damaged part of a decal beneath.
    Since then I've rivnutted bottle cage mounts.
    As this is an older frame (1949), I'm thinking that the handlebar mounts may be more appropriate, hence my current dithering. No rush, as I've a few more bits to source before I need to decide.

    I was going to say it looked like something you might find at a fetish event but then realising you are all such clean living folk i feared you might not appreciate it :whistle:.
