Could someone in Sydney make me a bracket?

Howdy,

I want to mount my VisionX lamps on my DR with a bracket that attaches to a plate that sits below the four supports that come from the fork bracket and above the front mudguard;



... but I don't have the skills or the metal to do it.

If someone wants to swap their skills and metal for my beer I would be very happy - it doesn't have to be fancy and I would think that if I just brought the bike and the lamps it may not take long at all to do on the spot.

I am in North Sydney, somewhere close would be good but I need to have it finished by next Friday.

PM me if you can offer any assistance.

Tony

Thumbs down

Are they something similar to this (link)?
If so it ought to be a piece of cake for someone with the material time & skill to make it as it would only need to be a flat bit of metal, aluminium would do the job nicely.

If i got hold of the right materials i could do the job, but i'd wager that it wouldn't be pretty, at ALL.

aside from the base bit of metal all you'd need is a ruler, drill & bit set, file & hacksaw and you've got it.

Mike,

That is the standard bracket that they come with.

I need flat plate with the four holes plus a bit of extra support where the lamps mount ( I will try and draw a picture of it and post it ).

I'm in melbourne so probably not too much help but i manage a waterjet profiling company and it would be a 5 min job at the most if i had the dimensions you need for the plate (also carry plenty of 5083 ally in stock). if you can't get anyone local draw up something with the spacing for the 4 bolt holes and approx how much extra you'd need on the side to mount the lights to and I'll post it up to ya express but it might cost you a beer next time i'm riding up through Sydney

That is an extremely generous offer and if I cannot get a plate sorted tomorrow I will certainly take you up on the offer.

If your worried about strength then a simple right angle bend/lip at the front or back of the mount with a few mm of material would be sufficient to strengthen the whole assembly up a fair bit. But if it was made from 5-6mm ally then i can't see it having much in the way of strength issues if it's going to be used for mounting two spotties.

And good on you mags, an absolutely awesome/generous offer.
