Does anyone (no names, no pack drill, Meldrew!) have a DennisB type satnav mount they'd sell me?

Thanks in anticipation.

Not sure if a system like this would work for you but I used a Ram Mount to mount my MP3 player between the handle bars. I suppose it could be adapted to just about anything. I used extra flat washers to bring the ball mount up far enough so that it wouldn't crack the tupperware when tightened.

This is a photo of the back side where I used small bolts and nuts to secure it. The whole setup doesn't look like much but it holds my MP3 player securely without wobbling and bouncing around.

Thanks for the suggestion, Dale, but I'm really after a DennisB type mount.

I currently have a Ram type mount, inherited from the previous owner of the bike, which accommodates my Garmin satnav.  

It is mounted above the speedo etc., which is excellent for visibility (don't have to lower your eyes far from the road), but is not bolted to anything very solid (which would be very challenging to achieve in that location) so the satnav bounces around somewhat if left to its own devices.

In practice I have that tamed, by judicious insertion of some short pieces of foam pipe insulation wedged between the wind screen and the satnav/mount.  

However, this does not project the degree of engineering and aesthetic elegance that I aspire to. I also can't help feeling that, in its own small way, it tends to let the down the entire international Silverwing brother and sisterhood.  Wink

Therefore I am hoping that some kind member of that august fellowship will sell me the DennisB type mount they longer have need for.

Just make your own from 1/4 aluminum flat stock. That is what I did. Dennis used appliance epoxy gloss black spray paint. You would have to get tubing spacers to raise the mount above the handle bar plastic. I used several washers. Use the ball mount with a flat base that has holes on either end. I used a short 2 inch extension that connects to the ball mount, and to my GPS holder with a ball.

The sat nav mount I bought from DennisB included a RAM ball I couldn't use as it had just a small amount of thread on it, and I replaced it with another RAM ball with a longer thread so I could tighten a nut onto it. Apart from that it works very well considering the overall weight of my sat nav/GPS set up of Garmin Zūmo and holder, locking Touratech cradle, and whichever length RAM arm and locking knob I opt for.

I'll sell mine as I no longer have a use for it, as my Forza has a centrally mounted RAM ball I installed and has a removable handlebar cover over it when not in use.

If I remember correctly, Dennis was selling them for $45 back in the the day, and there was still interest acquiring one long after he stopped making them.

I've no idea of what a good selling price would be, but I'm open to offers.


Which reminds me, I got the postage price of my Honda FSM last week, it's £6.50 1st Class, and £4.00 2nd Class. That's for Cover up to £50.00 and signature on delivery.

Hi Meldrew.

I've no idea on price either.  $45 = c£35, add something for inflation, deduct something for second-hand.  

Say £60 plus postage?  (I will be up your way sometime, so might be able to collect, but currently don't know when.)

... and I don't either. The sat nav mount won't fit in the padded bag I got weighed with the FSM in it.

Plus my preferences have been set up to neither receive or send messages.

I just thought fair enough I'll wait and see.

Hi Meldrew,

I'm confused.

I am not clear what you are waiting for.

I don't know what the FSM, or its packaging, has to do with it. (It was Firewall who was going to buy that from you - see separate thread.)

Why don't you temporarily enable private messages, and send me one with your phone number or email address, and we can discuss posting or collection? You can then turn private messages off again.
