"> I want to use some American Classic cages on a bike with no bottle braze-ons
> I have seen clamps that allow the bottle cages to screw into the clamp and strap anyone know who if anyone still sells those?"

If you want period correct, you will look to find a pair of the original American Classic band clamps (they supplied their cages with either the band clamps or the braze-on mounts). The clamps were also sold separately.

If you don't care about period correct, you can use Zefal plastic, Elite plastic, Minoura metal, or Klik-Fix metal (and I'm sure there are others I'm forgetting to mention).
