Rear view of the mounting hardware. I used a bracket from a Radio Shack universal phone mount.
Side view of the mounting hardware. The holes for the Garmin mount were tapped out to 2/56 size. It had existing brass inserts.
Top View of the mounting hardware. Very stable mount. I fabricated a metal plate for the underside to help prevent any cracking of the plastic.

Updated Frontal Picture
The Oval circle on each side are Pilot Driving lights. 55 Watts and throw out a heck of a side beam to light up the side of the road as well as whats in-front of you. Also note the Red light under the headlight. That is the Kit (as in the TV show) display lights. Bike is also sporting a new Tulsa windshield.
Mudflap mounted (Finally)
I finally found a bracket to mount my Yosemite Sam Back Off Mudflap.
New cockpit view
This shows the new cockpit view as of 3/22/01. Finally got my license and now have a Kenwood TM-7A Dual Band 2M/440 radio mounted.
Kenwood TM-7A Dual Band
Shows the Kenwood as it's mounted under the GPS mount.
View 2 of Kenwood Radio
Another shot of the Kenwood..
A Side view of the Kenwood
This shows how the Kenwood is mounted. I made an aluminum bracket and mounted it to the same base GPS mount. So far it appears very strong, does not vibrate and sits very nice right under the GPS.
Another shot of the Kenwood Mount
Here is a front view of the Kenwood Mount. I can still put my Honda Radio cover on.
Front view of the Kenwood with the GPS in place.
This makes for very easy viewing of both devices and everything is within short arms reach.
Cigarette Lighter box side view
This is my cigarette lighter. It is a metal box mounted to the Tulsa Radar mount. The 2 switches on it is for my Fog lights and the 2nd is my Push To Talk switchover. I use the existing Wings PTT for the HAM radio. So if I want to talk on the CB I flip the switch up and use the PTT normally. If I want HAM then I flip the switch down and again use the Wings PTT notmally.
Front View of the Lighter and Radar Detector.
This shows the lighter and radar detector. Everything is within easy reach.

Just a rear shot. Shows the Comet Rhino Killer Ham Dual Band Antenna.
