Old School Look

Been seeing a bunch of old school Bobbers on a Facebook Bobber Page,

So, I decided to try out the old school look.

Not sure if its working or not, but, I'm kinda diggin' it!

Might try putting the British Customs Drag Pipes back on..

If only I could lose that **** speedo!!

I hate your ridiculous JC Whitney-looking headlight so much I'm starting to like it.

Looking good GBN!
As for the speedo, you can always locate it - as per @ysoslo ’s interesting find:

I did consider that actually, even had it situated there and had a good look. but,, think it still flows better where it is, just wish I could,, I don't know,, down size it somehow, make it less "pimple on the end of your nose" like...

I keep hoping some one will come up with a kit to relocate the guts of that behemoth and run the info from it via a small cable, to an old school small round style speedo, with the warning lights and such in it.

I have seen some for other bikes, mostly custom chopper builds, but they are using a lot less electronics.

Brian posted some time back, about moto trio doing something with motogadget gauges, but I'm coming up 0's for info on that. @Brian ??

Very nice work, I see you removed the air box....did you make your own plate to cover up the fuse box & wiring? If so please explain...it looks nice!

OK I never flame any body's ride for the way It looks after all looks are very subjective right ? But this time I have to speak out . Relocating the speedo down there on the left ( or right ) looks Fu^&in terrible It just looks stupid like an after thought , I know we all like our machines to look different but that Is just [email protected]$d up not to mention darn right dangerous taking your eyes of the road for a couple of seconds to look down at your speedo Is just ridiculous I just hope that nobody has actually done It. . Flame me If you like I like a good argument ....Rant over .
