    Cheap bicycle iPhone holder $5.00 from Ebay.
    L-bracket, a couple of screws and nylon nuts.
    I didn't take all the pictures but will try to explain. Breaking the plastic off the part that would mount to the handle bars exposes the bolt that attaches to the L-bracket. The rest should be self explanatory. If you have questions, I'll try to answer.

    Cheap and I like it because I can swivel the phone for a better view.
    I use a iSimple gateway for charging and playing over the radio which was additional $20 (idea from fbconvert).

    I did that too... a few months back, but did a bit differently... I've since moved to a Razr and it has a vehicle dock (basically turns it into a nav system), and here's the final look....

    The original iphone install looked like....

    I used a $0.58 stud plate from home depot, bent it in a vise and mounted a cradle that came with the ipod adapter I got when I ordered my super-cheap stock stereo input adaptor. All of my bolts and such are hidden behind the dash kit, and the USB connector you see is from the Alpine HU that I'm running

    Thanks, I hope someone would like my cheap mod.
    I didn't really like the one's that suction to the windshield or attach to the vent.

    TurboGT,

    Yes, same Idea. I like the location much better.
    I saw the one's that attached to the passenger side and thought it was to far of a reach..
