    Dual elect Horns mounts

    I'm having a hell of a time trying to make a dual mount for my elect horns to fit on my BD.
    I ran out of metal here and I am out of good ideal's on how to mount them it would have been easy to mount if it was not that I have added a Surly nice front rack to my BD.The only other Ideal I had is to try to make a mount for the top of the rack on the back side.Something so easy to make but yet it's giving me hell lol...Ideal's welcome here.

    You could try mounting them under the rear rack. That should still give you the needed LOUD sound you are looking for. It would also make people REALLY look around when they can't see them on the bike. Much like I did with my Noisy Cricket........

    I used a stock 1987 Volvo 740 turbo wagon Bosch horn setup, including the mounting bracket. All I did was zip-tie the whole unit to the underside of the handlebars. At first glance it is not apparent that the horns are even there, since they point downward… but seeing as they are fed 16.8V (rated at 12V) they are eardrum splitting loud. As for my dual air horns, however, that is a different story.

    Thats a good idea I'll look in to it in the morning.It would be funny to blow them and they want know it's me lol.Think I get get two P brackets the size I need this would really be eas I think.Thanks for the idea I spent the last two days working on this lol.The funny thing was I thought the battery bracket would be hard to make heck I had that done in about one hour it was easy to make and mount.But I took it off so I can paint it when the weather is good here.
