On Training Wheels
- Nov 21, 2018
I've seen front mounted carriers that attach to the stem just under the bottom bearing race. Perhaps you could modify one of these by cutting off the carrier and using what's left for your mount. And for that matter I also seen front carriers that attach on top of the stem just under the lock "nut." Use of of these and attach a piece of metal the length that enables you to mount the light at your desired height.I made a ratrod like headlight from an old tractor light, now the question is how can I attach it to the bike? I would like to get it to sit a little above the fender, is there an existing bracket that attaches to the neck that would except the bolt on the bottom of the light?
how about this.....The headlight looks heavy-duty, and might be fairly heavy in weight too.
For the bike shown, perhaps some truss rod supports might help, (in the mounting of a headlight just above the fender).
The light could be attached to a piece of flat bar (1 thru-hole), and with each end bent 90-degrees and drilled for two more fasteners.
Then the bar could be attached to the truss rods, via commercial P-clamps (or R-clamps, etc.).
The reason for the two bends, is just so the angle of the light can be adjusted just right, rotating about the R-L axis of the 2 clamp screws.
Might not work so simply, if the light fixture is too much wider than the separation of the truss rods.
Kept the bolt but replaced the nut with a 3/8" x16 coupling long nut. Tighten the bars as normal and then use a bolt to attach the bracket.I like it. Did you just replace the handle bar bolt with a longer one and some tubing too?
