Given question #2 on my wish list in my VK2 setup post, I’ve decided to add an easily removed flag [actually wind sock, which is a spinner or spinsock]. I choose the patriot color scheme. I will use sectional carbon fiber poles, that I covered with white heat-shrink tubing, to display the spinsock and provided for attachment of the American Flag. I placed a CatEye White LED Safety Light at the top of the pole to give additional [early] warning. I’ve read different views regarding the use of flags on a low-racer, particularly the VK2. In my case, I want the option–and then there are displays, parades, etc.
I choose the rear axle as the mounting point and fashioned a metal bracket to receive the bottom pole section. For those time when the spinsock is not used [likely the majority of the times I ride], I made a cover for the bolt.
