Handlebar clocks

Are the handlebar clocks on ebay any good? At the price they are offered I am not sure if they will last.

Any recommendations?

Thanks,
LoupGarou

Maybe not the cheapest but worth their price.

Handlebar clocks

What about wearing a watch on your wrist😂 so you can tell the time. I can see adding a thermometer to the handlebar...

Hey tigrzeye, they look good but a little pricey, although I am considering them. How long have you had yours?

vstarjoe, I do wear a watch but when riding I have gloves and a jacket and I find it awkward trying to see my watch.

Thanks, LoupGarou

LoupGarou, I know what you mean I was kidding. I usually wear a watch when I'm riding and certain times I'll use my cell to see the time. I have one of those cell/GPS handlebar mount.

I had one on my Honda Shadow a few years back. Was a stem nut clock. Had it on for a season and a half then traded the bike in.

I just bought this one [[URL="http:// http://www.ebay.com/itm/MOTORCYCLE-CLOCK-STEM-NUT-MOUNT-YAMAHA-WHITE-DIAL-V-STAR-ROAD-STAR-BOLT-RAIDER-/251064738731?hash=item3a749fe3ab&vxp=mtr"]url
Made him an offer of $20. Ended up getting it for $22.95. Really impressed with the quality. Doesn't look or feel cheap like I feared. Came with two rubber gaskets so if one get old or damaged I have another. Really glad I finally bought one.

Sorry I can't get the link to post correctly
