Any one have an idea for a home made drink holder? I have an idea for one but I'm having trouble finding the right size parts!

I borrowed an idea from AVA Autotech. I purchased2 wire mesh pencil holders from Staples. A couple of nylon ties and I have a drink holder for myself and one for the passenger. I attach the holder to the right side passenger grab rail and mine on the handlebar. Works great. Cost--- about $1 each.

I took britman's idea with the water bottle cage and applied it to the passenger armrest. I made a prototype bracket that mounts under the armrest and the water bottle cage attaches to the bracket. Will take pics when I get home.

The bracket is long enough that the top of the water bottle is just below the top of the armrest and doesn't get in the way. Most other mass produced cup/bottle holders for the passenger armrest sit too high and the cup/bottle is in the way.

You could use some 3" PVC pipe with a cap glued in. Cut it to fit your needs, paint it, and zip tie it to wherever you see fit. I will see about going to the hardware store and getting the parts to take pics. I haven't done it yet seeing as I literally just came up with the idea. LOL

That's my idea too but 3" is to small and 4" just looks bad on the bike! I'm trying a 3" PVC union and grinding out the center ridge! Going to see about a couple of things today and see what I get!
