My thoughts exactly!!! Thanks, I'm actually just looking for a simpler. More retro speedometer, but with the dummy lights...

Alright, kids are gone, the lady isn't home... Time to get back into this bike. So I've picked up some wire, I've been reading so much about the wiring and rewiring on these bikes i think I'll just take a stab at rewiring... But that's for later, tonight I'll be getting into the motor and checking the valves, cleaning more and replacing gaskets!!!

Alright, moving right along! I've made some really great progress in the past couple nights and mornings, basically whenever i can squeeze some time in... Also lots of parts are starting to arrive! So I've started getting into the motor, and cleaning off all the old gaskets, man that's been quite an adventure! I've cleaned, degreased and primed most of the covers. Oh yeah I also started painting the tank, i wentback and forth between a bunch of oranges, and finally found one i really like! Unfortunately once a nice and shiny coat of paint was sprayed i noticed two more tiny dents... Doh!!! So time to sand back down and fill those areas! I really love the color of the tank, I'm thinking about a black pin strip on it somewhere, somehow, i haven't decided that yet. Well It's almost 1am and I'm about to call it a night, tomorrow however I'm off work so I'm really hoping to get a lot accomplished!!! Pay no attention to my messy garage, i barely have a corner to work with here...
