    GoPro "body work" mounting options for Gen 2

    With the possibility of touring opening up again:-) I was looking for a GoPro body mount kit for my Gen 2 bike.  This https://www.nippynormans.com/go-pro-mounts/wunderlich-go-pro-mount-s1000xr looks ideal, but at eighty quid it is quite a lot - anyone found anything similar, but cheaper?

    I don't have crash protection bars and don't like to use a handlebar clamp so my choices are a bit limited...  Peter

    If you can whip up a 3D model I can print one. I've been using 3D printed go-pro mounts for ages now and they are perfectly reliable and strong, with the added bonus that you can chose wherever you want it.

    I just buy loads of gopro mounts from ebay China and can find something to fit anywhere. Never paid £80 for anything.
    A small gopro mount (£99p) will stick onto the bottom of the screen and no one will notice.

    @Antares, thanks for the offer of printing, building a 3D model is beyond my pay scale:-) as they say but will have a search around and see what I can find.
    @BobT, I have some mounts I could stick on just don't like doing that, odd maybe, but true.

    Thanks for the replies, Peter

    After watching a 2 week old Go Pro tumble down the road at 120 KPH when its Chinese/Off brand mount failed, i've only since bought Name brand mounts.

    I watched someone fall off a motorbike but still ride them.
    Never lost one of my Gopros.
    Where do you think Gopro have their mounts made?

    3D printing is extremely strong in the direction of the layer i couldn't snap 2mm thick, 5cm diameter bushing, can be weak if you try to bend along the layers but thats a non issue with wall thicknesses above 2-3mm definitely stronger than some moulded pieces.

    Clearly you don't understand that there is a difference in quality between off brand and name brand products. Which is what my post stated.
