BRACKET SCIENCE
09/04/17 6:51 AM

I have a new bike related hobby. It's making brackets. I have some ideas for new parts and I'll update this thread when I make them.

Here's some I did a couple years ago for my Ohlins shock controls.

And just lately, I made these accessory brackets for the handlebars. They were designed for gauges but you could put all sorts of stuff on there with a little modification. I plan to make this a one piece unit for the RH side.

thanks Grn, thanks, paul. I'd be glad to sell them but they would have to go for a pretty hefty price compared to what you'd expect to pay for a mass produced item. I have to cut and bend all of these by hand. I suppose if I made some jigs that would help...or send them in to online machins shop and I'm sure they could just 3D print them. After all the time it takes to figure one of these out so it fits and looks right, it would be worth the price if you really need the item. LOL wish I could have just bought them instead of design them from scratch.

If anyone's interested, I'd donate a percentage to the forum. Have to work that out with bg.

Rook something like this is worth the additional price. It's a custom product and this is a good market for them. I've known people (and I'm sure many here have) that have started small businesses based on engenuity like this. The key is for you not to forget your "product" is not only worth the cost but also a profit, and consider you're spending time designing these too, some of that cost should be recovered in every bracket you'd sell.

"if and when" Vic, if and when....I'd love to sell them but the market is probably pretty small. If there's a dozen orders, I'm open! Thanks, though buddy. It's a little side dream but at this point in life, it's a sure thing or than you very much but I'll stick with the day job.

Can't forget these lil beauties. Overflow hose retainers! A must have mod to compliment your blockoff plates and expensive silicone hoses! A mere .30 oz! The screws weigh more than that! BUY NOW!
