Older handlebar bag

I've taken a hiatus from biking for about 8 years now, but i'm in the process of getting my bike tuned up. I was looking for an older handlebar bag that i used to use. All of the newer handlebar bags now seem to have a quick release mounting system. I was wondering if anyone remembers, or knows where to buy a older style handlebar bag that had the metal |_| shaped bracket with the 2 sides going through loops in the bag. the metal bracket would wrap around the front stem or the extender stem. i'd prefer to find one of these older style handlebar bags (so if anyone has one to sell ) or if someone can direct me to where i can find one, i'd be eternally grateful! Thanks!

have an eclipse, its blue, really good if the stem is Nitto, or like Cinelli 1a ,
as the wire support hangs off the bars, support is from beneath the stem
one continuous steel rod.

I happen to prefer the QR type, now, I use the bar bag in town all the time
at home.

@fietsbob THANKS!!! that's almost exactly the bag i remember. you nailed it with the wire support. if anyone knows where to get one of these, or has an extra one they're not using laying around, please let me know. i've searched and searched online trying to find one in decent shape, but they don't seem to be around anymore. if anyone else has input on these bags, i'd be interested to hear it!

They pop up infrequently on eBay.

If you're patient you can snag one.
