Patriot Guard rider flag and mount

Does anyone know where I could either buy or have fabricated a flag mount for my 09 V-Rod Muscle, would like it to be able to hold 3 flags 5' by 4' wide. I'm in the military and would look nice on the bike at a funeral.

My first thought would be to make a bracket that attaches to the upper shock mounts.

Or to attach a bracket to the bottom two exhaust bolts on the aft end connecting the two so the holders for the flags would be behind the tire. Each flag would have a clamp to secure to the bracket. What do you think?

Just make sure the flags are high enough to clear any moving parts; have seen what can happen several years back.

Awsome, I'm also thinking behind the red reflectors for the passanger relocation pegs. and then over top the back finder. Got a guy who does metal work coming by tomorrow to take a look, I will post picks when I get it done.

I was trying to pick a high point, to avoid tangling up with moving parts. For a 3mast stand, maybe a U-shaped bar, hooks to rear pegs or top shock mounts on both sides, goes over fender or pass pad.

I made a holder that clamps onto my luggage rack sandwitch style. Up high holds a 3x5 flag and looks good. If you aren't careful about where you put it, it will fly forward
toward you.
