Yeah, Rog, I saw one in my Killeen Suzuki days made out of a stihl chainsaw. We also used mezcal for the margaritas...

BruceLaQuinta and Bob Hancock,
Thanks so much for the pics of your mounts, I was able to make one yesterday and got it mounted on the bike today.
Rather than use the brass studs that are in the top of the fork tube, I removed them, and have a threaded stud in the end of the mounting perch. (fork caps have a 5/16 x 24 female thread).
I used a 3/8" Aluminum rod for the cross bar.



Got my Pocket PC with Garmin bluetooth in an Otter waterproof case,



and my Video Camera mounted solidly to the bike.

I know that this is reviving an oldie but I have a question. Bill are you saying that once you remove the brass studs (that have a M8-.75 thread on the end visible if I remember) has a 5/16 x 24 thread on the bottom?

Yup. The top of the brass is a pipe thread, that all shaffer valves use, then there is a hex for a socket, then the part of the brass that screws into the aluminum fork cap is a 5/16 fine thread.




5/16 x 24 circled in red screws into the stock aluminum fork cap. I put an oring on it to keep it sealed and to allow me to snug it up, without having to use much torque, so it wouldn't vibrate loose if the bar is removed
