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.

nice work ron
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!:rolleyes:

If you got to clean there anyway why not make it look pretty.:)

I suppose I could custom make them but I'd have to let the buyer do the staining and finishing, for anything other than an outdoor varnish. I've seen what some cabinet shops go through trying to get the colors just right to suit the buyer.

I made a top box for my Tiny Mite tent trailer some years back. I used 3/8" t&g cedar and finished it with marine spar varnish. Looed real good and really stood up to the weather well.

budoka; Cedar, I'll bet a unit made out of Red Cedar would be nice. I'll have to check out in the shop and see if I have any. It's raining anyway.

I looked for a digital voltmeter that would have gone with the digital gear indicator just forward of the voltmeter.

Hey Larry...I take it you didn't snatch that 1800 you were looking at.

Hey Larry...I take it you didn't snatch that 1800 you were looking at.
I couldn't solve the radio issue from here, 300 miles away before someone else plopped down the cash.

I need to take my time and find a low mileage red, blue, white, silver or yellow 1800 that is local so I can research it a little better.

So, I am gonna ride this 1500 for the season, unless I trip over an 1800 that I can't live without.
