will be interested to see how it works out if you go that route

Haven't bought the instrument yet.  So there's still a chance I'll change my mind.  Am concerned about viewability on a bright day with the sun high.  Out in the shop I've got a newer Road King harness too.  So couldn't convert everything up a bit and use the newer speedo if I wished. 

If I get too worried about seeing the instrument well enough on a bright day might still go with the HD dual instrument, it's cheaper off-shore knockoff or the really good looking Auto Meter brand dual speedo and tach.  Gotta love options.

I hadn't seen those Neal.  Fortunately I don't have to confuse my poor brain with yet another option as, equally fortunately, I actually like the look of the dual instruments.  The HD branded piece is to my eye pretty good.  The instrument from Auto Meter is good too though.  And certainly no issue with visibility here.  It's also plug and play for the year models in question.

It's mftr part # 19466.  Does have a Drag number though: 2210-0095.  So anyone who discounts DS part numbers could be a good source.

That's easy.  Auto Meter probably has other instruments to match it.

Hey Don,
  I stopped in today and spoke with the plater regarding the SERK wheels. He said, "I do not do a lot of wheels. I'm not really set up for it. If you can't find someone else locally, let me know. But, I would rather not do them."
  This is a disappointment but, I appreciate his honesty. He does great work.

  Before leaving I asked what he would charge, if he were to do it?  He replied, "$390, each."

  The plating will have to wait until further research is performed.  They may have to be shipped out of town.  :(

  Regarding the Auto Meter, a nice instrument indeed!   :2vrolijk_21:   Choices!   :coolblue:

This one is only an anecdotal recommendation.  Don't know anything about them myself.  But was told they "did good on wheels."

  :nervous:   "California Chrome Wheel"   :nervous:

 I spoke with a guy this afternoon that had his Fat Boy wheels plated here:

 He said they were three years old, having seventeen thousand miles on them and, I will say, they looked like mirrors.
Beautiful!
