    The metal bit loops under your stem and over your handlebars. It is right side up in the pictures. I'm not sure how to better describe it but it mounts just like it is in your first pic. You may need to move your bike computer or headlight mount over a bit to make space.

    +1 HandsomeRyan is correct. The rounded loop is at the bottom of the stem and rests on top of the handlebars. There are some sleeves on each side of the bag insert the ends of the metal rods into the sleeve until the rods extend out of the sleeves. This will hook the sleeves and hold the bag on the rack.
    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes
