Hey guys (and gals). I just read through most of this thread, I did skip a few pages here and there so if this came uP please just point me to the page, Has anyone built and used one of these rigs on a bike? I'm thinking I would like to give it a try but not really sure what the best option would be. I could remove the rear seat and clamp to the subframe. But then do icons over the rider or alongside oh me? Or I could clamP something to the front fork area?? Oh my bikes an 01 yamaha r1

Cool shot! Just a suggestion-straighten the car out and it will be a money shot!

I actually like it crooked! Nice job!

If you can get creative, you can make a rig for pretty cheap. I made mine for under $100 easy. You don't need avenger cups and manfrotto magic arms. You can improvise.

What does your boom arm look like assembled?


My village called. I was told that they missed me.

Speedotron users, untie!

Thanks Neil. That looks neat.
Where have you got those suction cups?
And do you have an unedited picture? ...would be interesting to see how/where the rig was fixed to the car
