I suffer from servere COPD ( Pulmonary hypertension) and am required to use a liquid oxygen pack when I am out, I have always been a biker my current steed is a Aprillia Pegaso 660.
I was wondering if anyone has ever modified a bike to use oxygen, any information and ideas would be helpful.
I just want to be safe as riding around with it in my back pack doesn't seem a good idea
Cheers Dougie

Depending on the size of the bottle you could get some clamps for a nitrous bottle the same size as your Oxygen bottle and have the bottle clamped securely on the bike.
Look at a webbing toolkit bag for a pushbike that is big enough to hold the mask and hose and you're done.

A couple of those to mount the bottle, different sizes of bottle and frame tube are available, try a UK firm like BigCC, or Debben Performance, that sell and fit Nitrous kits for bikes.

A bicycle tool bag should be cheap and you can find the right size to hold the mask and hoses.
Slap a NOS sticker on the bottle and see people's faces when you are using it!

Nice leather tool bags are available if that's more your style.
If you need a bigger tool bag then motorcycle ones are available, some are relatively cheap, others are silly money, just look for one you like.

NOS sticker if you want to decorate the bottle.
