Bike Pump?

I wonder if anyone can point me in the direction of a basic bike pump to fit my old Klapprad folder. She didn't come with a pump, but there must have been one originally as there are lugs for it to sit in. The problem is the gap measures roughly 9" between to lugs and large pumps are around 15" and mini pumps are around 7".

I can obviously just buy a pump to use, but she really needs one to look complete.

Thanks

IDK, about specifically the old (German?) thing.. since I never heard of one
and no pictures or references are offered.

Topeak Morph pumps work. A mini-floor pump with a hose to the tube's valve stem.

they have clips included, that go on Waterbottle bolts, but any decent velcro strap will do
to lash it on..
