Just finished homemade stereo mount.

Postby halcombrick » Thu Jan 01, 2015 10:09 pm



Hey guys I just finished making my own stereo mount for my 82 gl1100. I didn't like the fairing stereo looks or the factory pocket location so I made my own to mount on the visor above the speedo and tach. If your like me and want something just a little different try this, I know some people may not like it but I love it and that's what it's about, making your bike your way.. Rick

It looks good! How did you mount it in place?

what I done was slid my stereo out of its cradle as I call it and cut me some sheet metal to wrap around it. then I drilled out the two mounting holes in the bottom of the cradle and drilled through the sheet metal. I cut a piece of metal bracing that was long enough to go from side to side of my visor that covers my gauges. I drilled a hole on each end of the brace through the visor. then I took some smooth top bolts and went through the bottom of the cradle and through the brace and visor. then I put lock nuts on the underside and tightened the bolts. then I simply slid the stereo into the cradle. I painted my "box" metallic black then clear coated it to match my frame but it would looked just as good the color of the fairing. I hope this helps and works as good for everybody else as it did for me...Rick

That is really cool, I made my out of wood ....Wrapped it in imitation leather Stereo drops right in, screws right into the faring... Cheap and easy, I like your idea too....
I have two long wood screws to mount it, I use a round 3/4" piece of plywood to screw into the inside of the faring into those two screws as a backing....It's Strong... I am a caveman..lol :lol:
