Rear View Camera

I am working on putting a rear camera on my bike. Probably hooking it under the tail of the bike and i want to have the camer to display whats going on behind me on a screen i guess to attach on the tripple tree. I want to be able to drive my bike and not have to look back.. I want to have the screen to be able to detach to take it off when i go inside stores. Anyone have any ideas? thanks for your help.

put a camera on the front and you wont have to look forward either. just stare at your screen all day!


i dont think you can get a full perspective of whats going on by a camera. stop being lazy and look!

There is a way this can be done. Not really a big deal. The only prob is the weather proofing of the components.

PM me if interested. Probably be done for less than $100.

i think most people question the effectiveness. IMO (and just that) I think it's useless, as you should be able to yield better results with a look in your mirrors and turn of the head. The first time I saw it done, I did think that it was rather innovative. It should be very easy to do though and you could probably even use a cheap wireless cam from ebay, and a small TFT/LCD screen that wires to 12v...

If your wanting me to do it for you I can.....but that $100 was just a parts cost...my cost at that.

Maybe we should take this to PMs......

For video I just use cameras. Sounds like m109 has a good system available for the price.

They make a tom tom for bikes. I think you can add a back up camera ... just like a car. WAY more than $100 but the navi system is kinda cool and your phone can bluetooth to it

Just mount the rear camera upside down and put a 10" flip down monitor on the tank. Then ad som surround by sounds, use your storage compartment for your bass box you'll be good to go

You will need some way to flip the image horizontally if you are going to use just a regular little camera in the rear. If you don't, it will be counter intuitive because objects approaching from the left rear will be shown on the right side of the screen.

I like the idea, not so much for riding but watching for possible rear endings at intersections and traffic.

I'm sure he won't use this instead of his neck.
