HOW TO – Mounting a camera to your bike

Part2Wolfprime writes – “I got this idea after seeing the bottle cap tripod. I have a small digital camera that also takes video. I figured if I mounted it on my bike I could record some of my trips. So I thought I’d share how I did it for less than $5.” Thanks Jake! – Link & Link.

    Unfortunately, Matthew Hoppe stole this word for word (and pictures too) from another Maker.

    I like it! I think I’ll finally be bolting one of my CVS cams to my motorcycle fork using this method.

    One suggestion I would add would be to thread a nut down the bolt before installing the cam. Thread your camera down to the orientation you want & thread the nut up to the cam to lock it in place. Much easier than dealing with spacers.
