Very nice, did you weld it at the seams?

I duplicated this lowered foot peg on my Vstrom, from another guys idea:


While I was at it I bent the kickstand down so it would sit the bike up better:


Here is my pennytech bike lift. I use my truck ramp to get it up there:


This side rack keeps my bags off the exhaust:


I'm working on a tubular skid plate and crash bars for the Vstrom.

I gotta say, I love this thread.



Here's an easy one. I made this little handlebar mount as a combo phone holster and camera mount. I wanted to be able to use the nav on my phone for emergencies and it works great. Even though you can't use the phone and camera at the same time, I have shot video from my camera a couple times.



Found a kid's water bottle holder at the local bicycle shop - bought it just for the little aluminum clamp. I replaced the clamp bolt with a thumbscrew. The bottle cage is bolted on, so all I had to do was make my own cradle and bolt it on. I used self adhesive foam from the craft store ($1 a sheet), and a spare valve cover oring keeps the phone in place.

Nice little mount Gerhart! I like the sim plicity of it and the finish with the adhesive foam is great. I assume the problem with using both the phone and the camera at the same time is that the slider phone (?) hits the camera? How much farther forward would you have to move the camera mounting bolt to make them both be useable at the same time?

Yeah, I snapped the pics before I welded it. All seams are welded now.

V-Strom Front Fender Raise

Conventional wisdom says the crossover brake line prevents you from moving the V-strom's front fender any higher, but I noticed there was some room, to go up about an inch. Since I planned on drilling the plastic, I didn't want to fuck up, so I went conservative at 7/8", but it looks like a full inch would have been OK.

First, I cut a couple of these out of 1/32" aluminum. 7/8" between the hole centers.

V-Strom Front Fender Raise

The fender has to be drilled at the rear mounts 7/8" further down as well. Here you can see the original holes lined up.

This results in a substantial increase in tire clearance with no mods to the brake lines. I'm TKC-80 ready!

My first farkle was this diamondplate metal floorboard from when I was still riding scooters:

And most recently is this rack I'm still building, I'll repost when I'm finished:


I'm going for the look of this rack:

P.S. I read this entire thread last night until my eyes were red! Great stuff, I'll have to use a few of these ideas! Keep 'em coming!

Nice rack! (I almost got slapped when I worked at a bicycle shop and exclaimed that out loud to a nice lady with a really neat bike. I never lived it down with the guys in the shop. )
