FYI - Helmet and Gear Holder I made...
« on: April 05, 2017, 04:49:55 pm »
Connie Owners and pretty much anyone who has a Bike.  I wanted a wall mount to place my helmet on while charging my Sena 10C that would also let me hang my riding jackets, gloves, etc.  Something that was secure and with any luck would look nice.  Here is what I came up with.  I work a lot with acrylics and had some thick stuff laying around so built this wall mounted holder and hanger thingy. 

I put three hangers knobs on the bottom.  In the photos you can see two jackets; the one in the back also has a pair of cold weather pants so the hanger can manage a good deal of weight without flexing or breaking.

If you are interested in getting (buying) one, contact me for details.  They won't be expensive, just the cost of my time, and shipping, and they will look good in your garage holding your stuff.

I am also open to feedback about the configuration and such.

Thanks!

Hi, gilbysan (Bob);
I would be interested in one of these.  I notice you are in Carnation, WA and I'm not far away in Lake Stevens.  I could pick it up so you don't need to ship it.

Wow!  I did not think that there would be this much response from my little project, and THANKS!  Let me do this for all of us.  I need to get real about the cost, etc. 
I will then post another memo on this string to let everyone know what it will take.  Then we can get down to it.

Thanks Again everyone!

Matt - you're enjoying my new screen name?  I've been a COG member for a few years, and decided to make a new screen name that reflects my maturity level (or really lack thereof).  Last year I traded my C10 for a C14, and wow this bike is just SofaKingFast!  Hence, the new screen name.

Damn BG (gilbysan), looks like you have a full time job with these   :D

And if you sign up on ADVrider.com as a vendor you could probably sell a ton more of them, but take care of your COGger buddies  first   :great:

COGgers,

Thanks again to all who responded to my posting for this Helmet holder thingy.  I never imagined the response would be so overwhelming.  After consulting my Super Computer in Sausalito, CA (those of you old enough might recognize this reference), I have come up with a price of $50 each shipped to you in the US.  For other locations I will have to consult the shipping places to see what it takes to get them to you.

If you want more than one helmet holder, I think I can fit two holders in a USPS flat rate box so that will be the same.  Three may be a bit more, but I will confirm prior to accepting your funds, just to be sure.

Here are the specs for those interested:

Helmet Base - 1/2" Black, Smoke, Clear, or White Acrylic (Please tell me if you have a preference) with front and inside helmet blocks to keep the helmet secure.
Mounting Block - 2" laminated acrylic 3" X 3" pre-drilled and counter sunk holes for mounting.
3 - Hanger hooks made from Acetyl or Delrin for durability and fracture resistance.
I will include 3 - 3" square drive screws for mounting.

For those who want one (or more) please send funds by PayPal to my email: cloudofsparrowsdesign@gmail.com, name: Bob Gilbert
If you want to talk by phone: 425.246.9789

Thanks and safe riding.

I like smoke :great:

PayPal coming. Very cool!

I have three manequin heads for my helmets mounted on a shelf with a closet rod underneath for gear - I thought I was crafty but ya outdone me! This will mount high in the trailer when traveling and maybe in the house when home. Thanks and hope this is fun and profitable for you.
