Instrument cluster addition

As you can see it's just a mock-up and no accessories have been added yet. Perhaps I'll have it finished tomorrow

Looks like nice 'finish' work and handy-dandy, too. It makes so much more sense to craft a dash than to keep hose-clamping everything to my bars. I had to delete the clutch lever to add my compass and I'll prolly have to delete the brake lever for my GPS!
I also wish that when I just re-assembled my '03 that I had crafted a 'fuse block' instead of not... a nice marine grade fuse-block with only one type-a fuse and all in one place... pretty trick!

how did you attach it ? I don't recall mounting points under the bottom area. I'd love to copy the idea.

Send me your email and I'll send you the cad file I made and you can have a local water jet cut one from 1/8" aluminum. I have several brackets that hook around the back of the instrument cluster, I can send pictures

You are correct, it's about the peak of slick rock. Are you familiar?
