Here is a couple pics..One of the speedo and one of the bike so you can see the method to my madness..The theme is black widow...tribal web on tank and fenders..I followed that with the black insert for the speedo to pull it all together..Night time it is awsome..

Nice! How's the quality of the face plate (fit/finish)?

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

The fit was absolute..

The finish is nice. He worked with me via email and adjusted it to whtaever I wanted and was very patient with me..I believe its made from lexan which is top notch..He infact made me 2 for the price of one. I didnt even know it..He sent them both to me and I got to pick out the best.. I think his first one was a little less than red where it was suppose to be red. The one I put in was perfect..

Kinda a bitch to put in BUT if your mech inclined and have patients its very do-able..

The pic doesnt do it justice..

Hoss,

I had found that same company online that you used and want to get my speedo face done to coordinate with a Derby and Cam cover work I am doing. I am going to submit my own image so want to give a lot of thought to the image I send them if color makes a huge difference to visibility for night vision. I am curious how it lights up on yours (BTW, I cannot see your two pictures, says they have been removed, darn! I would have liked to see it actually on a bike). I will only have a partial kmh line, cutting out some of the lettering and line and relying mostly on the picture for my speedage points. Does it light up real nice? I don't suppose you could send me a picture of yours mounted on the bike? Really curious about the look.........

here ya go sorry about the deleted ones..night time it shines great. My buddy did his and I dont know why but he changed the letters to black but he did and it was a disaster for him.. and the day time its cool. but you cant see them at all at night..so when you design it think light shineing thru the back of it and what it may look like..mines bad ass if you want later i will get you a night pic..
