PostSubject: Armrests for HONDA SilverWing- NOT Just a Thought Anymore   Thu Feb 12, 2009 3:23 pm

Hi All,
Been thinking of a arm rest system that will mount to the Swing and have rotating armrests so they can swival up and out of the way so the passenger can mount and dismount the seat without any problems and then be brought back down for use. This system would work with all Top box's and installation can be accomplished without drilling holes.......It can be done!
I'm going to put on my thinking cap and come up with a product design. What a Face

DennisB :D

P.S. and it will be made NOT TO RATTLE when installed. bounce

Dennis:
That sounds like an interesting idea. In fact you could offer several types of arm rest systems that could be interchangeable depending on your passenger. Now this may be extreme, but for example if you had a passenger who has a habit of falling asleep while riding, you could offer an arm rest system that holds them firmly in place with nice big padded arms, a neck brace, and even a seat belt they could fasten. It may end up looking like some sort of Rube Goldberg apparatus, but it would work.

Dennis,

Do you have any basic drawings of how it may look? I know I would be interested if it fit on my top case. My wife would really like it.

Hi All,

Well the new armrest frame design is working out well. I need to get a little welding done on it. After that paint and then the armrest pads.

Then the design testing period.

The armrests will bolt on to the the scooter using the 2 bolts located under the seats top/side edge (they hold the spoiler on to the scooter). The original 2 Honda spoiler bolts will be replaced with 5mm longer bolts that will be included with the armrest kit

Sorry this is taking so long but I have other pokers in the fire right now. Will have pictures for you all soon. bounce

Going to look and work great on the Swing.

Dennis here you go again with another great product. You are fast becoming our #1 resource for unobtainable items for our swings. I would think the arm rests will swing out of the way for passenger mounting just as they do on Goldwings if that design is feasable. Many thanks for all you are doing for this group.

Dennis, That sounds like a great idea, and should be relatively easy to do. Let us know what you come up with...billc.

billc,

Not to steal the thread from Dennis, but welcome to the forum. I hope you enjoy it and please post some pics in the Album.

Dennis,

I'm really curious what this will look like. It seems pretty cool.

Thank's for your interest,

DennisB

Hey Dennis,,, this looks great. When you are ready to send some of these out, I want one. If you don't get em out really soon, I am coming to the Tulsa gun show the first week end in April for the outlet installation. We can maybe do the set then. This is making me anticipate April with a happy heart in spite of the tax time.
Is there anything you can't do? Amazing. You need to think about some patents.

Do they pivot out of the way or detach??
Since I ride with a passenger so much, I need to make sure it does not interfere with loading/unloading.

Hi All,
It's grand being a Dennis "the menice". I'm going to need to put this thought, armrest, on hold for awile untill I feel better. Just somthing I've had all my life and once in a while gives me hell for a month or two every few years.

I'll be OK. Thanks all for your support and kind words. sunny

Hey Dennis,
I have been off the air for awhile; we are building a house. Did you ever finish the arm rests? I really would like to buy a set.
