Default Gauges came in today for the bike :)

Decided I wanted to install two gauges on the old harley. I only have a speedo in the center and thought having 2 of these 1.5" gauges on either side would look cool and add some functionality. Gonna install the oil pressure and temp for oil temp. I was really impressed by these gauges, built solid and have a sweet clamping ring that differs from the usual u-shape metal bracket that pinches it.

well, turns out the factory gauge bracket for the gauges was to FLIMSY!!! so, I go some 3/16" plate I had laying around and made a new bracket. Much better I still got some finishing to smooth it out, just got it primered for right now.
