'66 attaches same as your '69. My friend's is currently held on with a zip tie.
There was another version that had a threaded stud spot welded to the strip, instead of the eyebolt arrangement. Problem with that design is when the stud fails, you can't fix it unless you weld something to the strip.
Even all metal motorcycles have their weak points. But at least I can fix metal.
