06' and prior GearUp's came with a factory flag holder called a Machine Gun mount on the nose of the sidecar.

I built flag mounts using PVC pipe - schedule 40 1 1/4" for the mount which is held onto the side of the car with clamps, and schedule 40 1" which slides into the mount perfectly for the pole itself:

Right side:



Left side:



With flag poles mounted (flags in protective covers):



the mounts are bolted onto the chair with fender washers on the inside of the trunk to help strengthen the whole installation. They work great at speeds up to 60 mph - they will probably work at faster speeds but that's the speed we usually top out at on PGR missions. I also reinforced the edge of the flags to help them last a bit longer at those speeds.

Flags of Our Fathers, huh?

Not exactly on a hack, but dooable, I susepect. You best also look at just how just much drag you expect on a big flag mount with the wind whipping it as you drive or you could easily rip out some metal where it all hooks into place on a hack.

I have not yet purchased a Ural, but I was thinking of a similar setup for fishing rod holders. Dreaming of uses and excuses to buy I guess.

Greg, since you are down in Florida, I have an easy solution for you. When reading this, the first thing I thought of was boat flags. Any marina should have a wide assortment of flag poles and mounts with multiple mounting solutions. I remember your rig having a trunk rack, which means a clamp type mount for tubing should work. I just googled "marine boat flag holder" and came up with this link that has a ton of options.

Works fine in lower speeds.

I did the exact same thing with a smaller Aussie flag one Australia Day. The short rearward upright stay on the outside was perfect clamping match for a eight inch high flag on a wooden dowel. Just have to give it clearance when opening up the trunk.

Not an American Flag, and certainly not large, but the is the quasi-semi-full-official ADV rider flag offered by GadgetBoy on this website. The pennant/burgee mast is from West Marine.

I used a flat piece of steel and drilled a hole in it the same size as the rear mount connecting the bike and hack. Then I welded a short piece of pipe and a connecting fitting to that. Painted it all black and then bolted it on the rig.

This way I can unscrew the "pole" and leave the mount on the rig.....30 seconds on and off....easy as pie.

Use it for PGR missions....parades....or just for a fun run around town. I usually ride it on any day of military importance....such as Pearl Harbor Day etc.

Can take some better pictures of the "mount" if needed...

Nothing fancy. Used the one mounting location already there on the tub frame and then added an exhaust clamp to go around the tube of the tub frame - solid as a rock.





The "pole" is just another chunk of the same pipe.....with a coupler screwed on it so that it can screw down on those threads.
