recently bought myself a 1992 Claude Butler Dalesman, it has single eyelets at the bottom of the fork and mudguards attached to them and a single mounting bolt about 1/3 of the way down. I cant work out what front rack to get for it. Most racks seem to have the upper mounting that requires a bolt on both sides of the fork.
hope this makes sense and any advice welcome..

The front of the rack also provided a mounting point for lights away from front panniers, barbag or cape and low enough to light up pothole edges at speed.
