Flag.Stripper pole on a sidecar

We just built a sidecar rig for an antennae company. The sidecar tub has a mount for a 3 meter tall TV antennae. E-mail me for pictures of it.
Regds,

small flag mounts

larger flags tend to end up pulling loose, shredding, etc....Easy enough mount for slow speeds would be a piece of pvc pipe mounted to the sidecar, flag mounted on a good stout farm implement handle...but wind, speed, etc...all can cause problems. I wanted a small flag on the hack...but didn't want to spend the $70-$90 they want at the local HD shop of Goldwing counters....so I went to my local truck stop and bought a spring mounted cb radio base and fiberglass antenna, Flag was nylon, rip stop, mounted the cb mount to rear rack, and away we go....total cost about $25...less if you scour a junk yard for parts....

I revisited this thread today for less than good reasons. While I had thought about ClearwaterBMW's ideas to mount a flagpole to a hack, I had never had the need to do it on my own bike. A few days ago two fine Soldiers from 3d SFG were killed in action. While I knew both of them, one of them happened to be from nearby in Aberdeen, NC. Westboro Baptist Church is in the area protesting, and the family has requested the presence of the Patriot Guard Riders. It got me motivated, so I will be doing an escort ride tomorrow morning.

In a mad scramble for a flag pole, I stumbled across an aluminum base with adjustable angles at Lowes. I picked it up, did a quick drill job on the tub, and here is what I came up with. The bracket was $10, and I just ran it up to 60mph without an issue.





Now I'm off to dinner with a few inmates, then to get a new flag and pole for tomorrow.

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.
American flags on Rooski rigs, how cool is that? Reagan would love it!
