Thanks to all who replied! I would have never guessed the american classic water bottle holders, I think I have the clamp hardware for them somewhere, I did not know they went together, now I just need some american classic cages...

How many other listers were at that sale? I remember seeing Joel Metz there, but was not involved in the vintage community at the time, anyone else? I think it was in Palo Alto in the 1996-1998 time frame....

Thanks all,

Tarik
