« on: July 29, 2009, 03:38:00 pm »
Need some info on mounting flags on the C10. Has anyone done this? I'm interested in mounting 3'x5' flags for use when doing a PGR mission. If this isn't practical then I will use the small mc flags. I already have an idea for that mount. Any info/help is greatly appreciated.

I have thought of a couple of mounts for the rear luggage plate.  My worries have always been what would happen to the flag at speed and the other fact that my Connie doesn't like parade speeds, temp guage goes up too far for my comfort.  But a nice 6in tube with one or two screw stops in it to hold the flagpole in place and a support angle on it to provide resistance to flip over would work.  Have it on a base that bolts inplace of the existing rack and you are golden.    My thoughts, not the absolute facts. :)

I was thinking for the smaller flags just a piece of flat or angle under the trunk on the luggage rack. But it has a warning about max weight of 11 lbs. Thinking the pressure from larger flags may be too much. I'm not sure though.   Denver (of the east) N.C.  AMA 973014  COG 7881 PGR   NRA Life   GOA  '80 KZ1000 LTD  '00 ZX9R Ninja  '04 ZG1000 Concours  http://community.webshots.com/user/Branded58

How about mounting it to the grab rails using a hose clamp.  Thread the clamp through some thin hose to keep the clamp from damaging the grab rail.  --  Steve Smith, COG #3184  COG Northeast Area Director  (somewhere in south central CT)     If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space.

There is more to be gained by members raising hands saying "I'll do that" instead of pointing fingers saying "nobody's doing that."

   I seen a Harley with this type of mount it looked good didn't get to talk to the owner. Maybe next time.

   I looked at doing this and believe it will work but I would have to remove my trnuk. May end up going this route.
