Flag Mount

Postby wingsailor » Sat Jul 21, 2012 7:00 am



I have recently joined the PGR and want to mount a 3'x5' flag on the trailer hitch of my bike. Looking for instructions and/or pictures of a a mount I can make myself.
thanks,
mike

Rivco makes a nice one but they aren't cheap.

MAybe you can fab something like this:

I used a piece of pvc big enough to go over the ball and approx 6 inches long , I drilled two holes thru it, one under the ball so the bolt locks the pvc onto the ball, and one closer to the top to go thru the flagpole to hold it in place, the another pvc bushing to go from that one down to the flagpole size. I then painted them black, used two 1/4'' bolts and two spring keys for easy removal. I have used this set up on many PGR rides this year and it works great. The only other thing you need is a good strap for support somewhere higher up, I have a Goldwing and use the helmet locks, you can't use them for anything else anyway.I have maybe $15.00 tied up in the whole set up and it looks good.
