I rode in the local Armed Forces Day parade today. About 50 bikes, (a mix clubs, PGR, and veteran riders) led the parade of military vehicles and personel.
I've been trying to figure out how to mount the US and PGR flags I got few weeks ago. I've been rolling ideas around on how to make something myself. I wanted something that I could leave on the bike, didn't use bungee cords, and wasn't really visible when not in use. Here's what I came up with.
2 pieces of round bar about 8" long with a bend of about 10°. Then some pipe "sleeves".
I have the round bar mounted to the back of the saddle bag frames with band clamps in case I didn't like to the fit. But I think I'm going to weld them on for a more finished look.
The sleeves fit over the round bar to give some extra length for holding the flag poles.
Then some minor adjustments to the clamps so the poles stand at the right angle.
Only cost me about $3 in clamps and some scrap metal. I think it came out pretty good for a DIY job.
