A 1986 VN750 is the virtually the same as the 2006, you should not have a problem. I see used gauges on Ebay all the time. You can also ask folks here if they have a set, good folks here who are more than willing to help.

I saw a new speedometer housing on e-bay last night, might want to check it out.

I've got a couple of options for you. I have a couple of cleaned and rebuilt tachs and speedos that I could sell you - $40 speedo, $50 tach; also have a brand new speedo - zero miles (hard to match that to an '86!) - and could sell it for less than what you can get the part from Ayers or Bike Bandit ($165).

Is $165 the Ayers and Bike Bandits retail price, or your asking price, Cindy. Sorry for the Noob Question, but I really have no idea what some of these pieces are worth.

Get some hammerite paint and just wire brush the housing semi smooth then paint. The Hammerite is real tough and shiny when fully dry and can be painted right over rust. It stops the rust. Great stuff. You can get it in smooth finish or a hammered metal finish. I just recently saw that rustoleum also has a hammered finish paint.
