I posted this over in the XCW thread in Thumpers, but it probably belongs here more,

Next comes a trip to the molders for test shots, 3mi away, he wouldnít let me take any pics of him, but hereís the business end,

And back to start building the mounting brackets,

Having had a few months to daydream about the mounts so I already had plans on what to try first,

The right hand side plate can be removed while all the components stay bolted to the other side for ease of working.

Iíll be trying a plastic shear bolt for the roadbook mount to allow limited rotation in the event of an impact.

Buttoned up,

We have a volleyball tournament this weekend, so Iíll need to find time to finish the wiring and go for a ride. Up next is the fork mounted version, same brackets, just reversed,

Plan is a bit of testing over the next few weeks, then a vendor thread.
