I was messing around in the garage last night and found an old bottle opener that matched the patina so I explored my mounting options and the tank screw looked the best. Actually works good!

Yours looks great Matti!! I had it on a brake bolt but I couldn't get it to look right. Over thought it or something. I angled it to the rake of the headset to make it fit a little better. Curves into the tank a bit.
In the 1970s there was a rumor going around the American side of Sault Ste. Marie that they got thrown in jail on the Canadian side for having an obscene act. I can’t imagine them being obscene, but women weren’t even allowed in bars then either, unless escorted on a walled off side.

I should do research, “The Incidence of the Word Eh in the English Language”. I would draw an isoline map, the lines would probably go across Canada, spreading out in the Arctic, dipping down into the USA and encircle Lake Superior.

Sorry for the poor photo, it’s max zoom as I went outside to take it in flip flops and didn’t want to leave my shoveled walk to wade through snow. I bought several of these cast iron reproductions from China years ago, and painted them. They have “Open Here” in raised letters that I painted red. I put one on a bicycle, welded a plate to a frame and bolted the opener to that.
