Vertical action cam mount

Hope I'm asking this in the right forum.  I'm sure you chaps can advise.

Just bought myself a really nice electric scooter.  Smooth and fast.  I want to mount an action camera on it, probably getting the DJI.  All the pictures I've seen of any cam mounted on bikes and similar show the mount catering for a horizontal bar, eg, the handlebars.  But the scooter doesn't have enough horizontal real estate for a mount, so it'll need to go on the vertical bar, which is very slightly oval, max diameter maybe 2.75 cm.

What's a good mount, in your recommendations please?

Thanks!

This is GoPro's original version of roll bar mount on one of my bikes that happens to have a DJI Osmo Action on it.  Adhesive mounts may possibly work if there you can match the curvature of the stem.  Ram also makes a lot of mounting options that worth consider.
