919 Fork Diameter

Okay. I'm looking at making a small camera mount for the bike and thought about trying two things. First is to mount to the bars and the second is to mount it to one of the front forks.

I know 3/4 PVC will work for the bars, but what about the forks? What is the diameter? I'm been looking all over and have come up with somewhere around 43mm, but I don't have a good way of measuring at home.

Anyone know for sure?

EDIT: If it is 43 mm, then I think I can make 1-1/2" PVC work.

I guess a third option is just to have my wife hold the camera.

43mm is correct.

The one place I didn't look. I usually look their first, but I didn't even think of it today.

Thanks guys. That's what I was looking for. A 1-1/2" Schedule 40 PCV T has an ID of 1.875. I'll lose some diameter with my saw cuts, then can make up any minute difference with a rubber or foam wrap.

If you might want to buy something instead of making it, these are nicely made:

Techmount & Cords

Those look nice but I'm too cheap for that. $5.00 worth of PVC, a couple nuts, bolts, hose clamps, and some black spray paint and I'll be set.
