noVA-Strom , Believe it or not that Top box came on a rear rack for a 78 honda 750 that I picked up at a yard sale. I built a mounting plate
(semi-permanent) from a black " Economy " this means Dollar Store cutting board and drilled and tapped the OEM rack to accept the bolts. :lol:

The camera mount is the slightly bent handle bar mounting stem from my sons no longer rideable 20" Mongoose BMX bike cut off just bellow the
taper'd end. The top of my video camera tripod, a Radio shack unit that I bought on a close-out sale , a 4 1/2" X 1/4-20 bolt , a 1/4-20 tee nut & a 2 1/4" round disc cut w/ hole saw from a scrap of the previously mentioned cutting board. total out of pocket expenses for everything is less than $30.00 :shock:
:lol: :lol: :lol: That's why I use the Term "Penny Tech" !

That is REALLY COOOL! I also was thinking on of what camera mount to buy, but 1st: there is not too many available here, 2nd: they are expensive for me. So I decided not to have movies. But now you showed my the way of fabricating an amazing unit. Thanks a lot, now I get something to do in the winter season!

NICE

Excellent Job! Got to let me know how steady the mount is, I'm still working on mine to find a way to keep the slack out on the rough roads. I'd debated in my head how a rigid bar would respond to the handlebar vibrations.

Keep me posted, we can talk on the next ride maybe????

Well the rigid mount is excellent on the snap shot's
However on the video mode at rpm's above 4000 the vibration is agrevating
I',ve been experimenting yesterday & this evening with a revised semi rigid mount butit's not there yet..
But .... Rome wasn't BURNED in a day!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

So it vibrates? :cry: What a pity! It seemed rock solid, factory-like and extremely simple!

And what about the front fairing? Do you have any experience on camera mounts bolted to the screen bracket mounting holes? That would be also better in terms of cam view which was constant instead of shaking with the steering movements.
