    Jake,
    I was thinking of using actual guages, probably a speedo and a clock. I'm most interested in the housing and how you made it.

    Cheers,
    Dr. T

    ONCE AGAIN GOOD IDEA DOC. I DIDN'T THINK OF THAT. THAT TANK I BOUGHT IN A BIKE STORE. I CAN'T LOCATE THE COMPANY THOUGH. I THINK IT WAS MADE BY LONE RIDER. I LOST THE PAPER WORK FOR IT DURING THE MOVE. :x I NEED MORE OF THEM . PEACE

    Jake! My "build brother" friend! It was freaking awesome meeting up with you tonight for drinks and bike talk.
    Thanks again for being the cheerleader/sensei for this build off.

    Next time you plan to rock out with your guitar, cue up Stevie Ray Vaughan's "The House is Rockin" and then get to buildin' on your next wicked creation!

    Good luck in the voting and in life!
    Keep in touch!

    PEACE!
