    For those of you without access to a welder, I figured you can make the 'early style' fork cap tool mostly with parts from your bike! Use one of the 17mm-headed engine mount bolts, screw on a 1.25...

    Kinda what I figured... think it'd be difficult to match the gearing between the two speedos?

    Also, thanks for the tip on Stewart Warner!
  17. How to Use a Vintage Car Speedometer on a Chopper?

    Just an idea, but I was wondering if anybody has ever used or tried to use an old car speedometer on their bike? I know the speedometer's gearing ratio, wheel circumference, and rolling distance all...
