Default Unique GL1500 Voltmeter Mount.

With all the new 1500 owner we I have, I thought I'd bring a couple of the thing you can make for the 1500 back into the picture.

Here is a unique mount for an Analog Voltmeter I made for my 1500. So far I think it's one of a kind.

I like that it looks nice with the wood.
That's a necessary item too a voltmeter.

Sweet! The 1800 riders have to get the digital and some tuck them down in the steering well. Yours looks like it belongs there.

They went out in today's mail. Had them ready to go yesterday but it was MLK day and the Post office was closed.
They are full scale drawing, top, side and end, plus a templet you can use to trace onto to your stock.
Let me know how it goes, and contact me if you have any question.

Thanks, detdrbuzzard. I've made a couple other thing for the wing over the years. Instead of the Star washers under the trunk rack post, I've made a flat strap thing out of polished flat Aluminum stock that runs under both post on each side from front to back.
and a polished Aluminum piece behind the License plate.

Very nice looking! Very professional looking! An idea might be forming.......why not produce these for sale??? The board with whatever type wood desired and a voltmeter mounted with it..all the customer deeds to do is plug it in and mount it! Wow....I see a desire for this item!
