    ST1100 cheap quick homemade shelf.

    I got bored today so grabbed some road find diamond plate and made a shelf to put my camera on. Cost me less than $10 for hardware. Looks like crap but for cheap and 30 minutes of my time it'll do for proof of concept. Utilized existing screw holes so no lasting modifications to the bike.

    Nicely done!

    The only problem with "proof of concept" fabs is that they often become permanent, at least in my case-especially if they work well! Oh well, form SHOULD follow function!

    Polished burl walnut would work nicely in that situation.
    Don't tell me what I know. Tell me what I don't know.

    Nice DIY. Mark Reis pioneered the idea years ago. One of my favorite farkles over many years and miles. Google “Mark Reis ST1100 dash shelf” and view the images. FWIW

    Thanks for the replies, suggestions and links. I have already spent some time drafting some measured plans for the next version using some of the info.

    Ok I had some time today and made a slight improvement. It still isn't walnut but think it looks better.Click image for larger version.

    Very nice! If you painted it matte or wrinkle black it would look like factory equipment!

    Re: ST1100 cheap quick homemade shelf.

    Nice job!

    The only suggestion I’d have, aside from the paint, would be to put a soft edge on it to prevent barked knuckles. One way to do that is to slit a length of small dia. hose (Tygon or neoprene) and fit the slit over the edge. You can glue it with something like cyanoacrylate or Gorilla Glue.
    The harder I work, the luckier I get.
