My personal opinion
on some of the motorcycles
Dave Bulthuis sent me this brilliant tip on how you can easily make your own motorcycle camera mount. Check out the instruction video below. Thanks for the tip, Dave.
Great project. Too bad there isn’t a verison for us poor souls with clipons.
Couldn’t you just make one similar that attaches to the fork legs or something?
Muy bueno,facil, varato y muy funcional. muchas gracias.
I see that its a fantastic Idea to have a camera on your bike and the PVC idea is great and affordable. I rate it a 100 in the ratings dept. Nice idea and ingenuity advanced . Good thinking i might use it on my next show . Unless im in prison and then i will use it in my cell .
I love having attached a camara to my bike. Evan Andersen rocks, is the title of the camera. There is no where that I will not ride without it.
this is a cool idea, what a way to take pictures of your bike ride
I agree with Evan Andersen, there is no better way to get around then have a $5 camera to tape your face in the wind, right on evan andersen, in my book you are Awright.
[…] is the most economical mount yet …. the $5. camera mount. The sound on his video is mostly wind noise as he has no windshield. Great idea though. […]
lol, that’s a great idea. simple, easy, and cost effective. thanks for the tip!
Ensure a locknut is used to prevent the threaded bolt from being screwed too far in and damaging the camera. Great idea.
I didn’t see a place to rate this, but I would give it 5 star because it was a brilliant idea and gave me some other ideas for attaching other items, (like a compass) to the bike.
I am looking for a clever way to mount a camera inside your helmet, because it’s quieter and you can speak into it.
I love it.
What a nice simple, cheap and effective solution.
I hadn’t thought of using my cheap still camera’s video capability ’till now.
Gotta go find a hardware store. Bye!
crap, ur riding on the wrong side of the road!!

Nice… But any ideas on how to do this helmet mount?
Notice how when he crashes [00:16] the mount extended to a position where you can see another angle from the helmet, then it almost goes back to the original position [minimal tilt].
There are three threaded connections in the helmet, Im looking for flexible and crash resistant materials for the poles.

Nice mount. Very very cheap, we can’t sell our mounts for that kind of money 🙂
Nice post ! simply the best post I have never seen like this post this will very informative one.
Its relly an innovatiuve idea of mounting acamera in a bike and the video posted about regarding this is very clear and understandable.
Great idea. My speedometer gets in the way so i had to put an elbow in mine and a extention which gives me a little too much vibration but cool idea anyway
wow!! so simple, great idea, I will use it to attach other things to the bar
The 1/4″ thread is too long and could cause serious damage to some cameras which have little protection at the bottom of the tripod screw thread.
Use a locknut, washers and/or short spacer to allow the camera to lock in position before the screw reaches the bottom of the camera thread. Fitting an inexpensive ball and socket head would give some positioning flexibility and avoid damaging your camera.
Good idea all the same!
Great blog, keeping me from working on homework.
Good to see more people writing about bullet camera.
What a brilliantly simple idea! Does exactly the same job a a small rollbar mount but at 1/8th the cost!
Exellent idea my friend! Keep up the good work 🙂
