Cheap Easy Drink Holder

I couldn't find a holder for my water bottle/coffee mug that I liked so I just made one myself. I think it turned out pretty well.


I bought an Outdoor Research drink holder online. Its the type made for backpacking, etc. Velcro onto a belt or backpack strap. Then I cut a piece of 3mm ABS to fit inside to hold it round. Finally I grabbed some 2" Velcro to mount to my saddle bag. I haven't tried it out, and I might find that the velcro isn't strong enough to hold the weight at the angle, but I used a similar setup on my GSA and it worked perfectly. Check it out!

Not bad at all. The lid should help a little too with the weight. If not there's always a way to thicken the part that's inside the bag so it won't come out from under lid. The velcro should work well with the Harley felt saddlebag liners.
Good idea, try it out and post the outcome

Looks good!

I've been racking my brain to come up with something similar for my wife to keep her water bottle in when we are on longer rides. We don't have the saddlebag crash bars and it seems like most bottle holders are made to stick to them.

If you're concerned about using Velcro look at 3M™ Dual Lock™ Reclosable Fasteners.

That stuff is strong.

Great idea by the way. I'm going to make one for the Yeti drink tumbler I just got for Father's Day.

Awesome idea! My only concern would be how much paint wear it will cause going down the road.
