GoPro on a Skate Bike

I have been experimenting with mounting a GoPro on my Skate Bike. Originally I had the camera on my helmet but this resulted in a floating camera shot with no reference points to set the shot in context. The skatebike is not exactly loaded with spots to mount a camera. I finally found this position. Note: when the bike falls over the camera has a tendency to change angle. Check after a fall.

    My skate bike above is a Minson. From the 80’s. I have never heard of a twisties promotion. Was it a special paint scheme?

    Do you have one?

    Do you know where I can get a Minson? Grew up in Boynton Beach (home of skate bike) and would love to reclaim the memories.

      I see them sometimes on eBay but they are not common. Most were used an abused then left to rust.
