    Does anyone have a bike that uses a quill seatpost? They are quite rare.

    I used a quill stem to make a layback seatpost. Does that count? I don't have a picture of mine, but here is my inspiration. Might have come from a GuitarCarl bike. 4581fa34a33388c91a33ac0a95c0c080.jpg

    Bridgestone Kabukis have them. No seatpost clamp bolts.

    The styles sure have changed in the last 70 years . But the same
    principle , no clamp required . The 40s and 50s Hiawtha's used them .

    I'm not sure if you are looking for this specifically or trying to solve a problem, but another solution for a frame without a binder bolt is an external seatpost clamp—way cheaper and easier (and less likely to break) than the video, though you're seatpost minimum height will be about an inch higher.

    Looks like CWC ( AMF , Roadmaster , Shelby ) built bikes used them a lot in the 50's .
