I think it looks great. It's classy, not to mention handy and it fits perfect right there. Nice work man!

Could you post a picture showing the actual mounting from the opposite view. It really looks great from the riders side and I am very interested in your actual mounting setup. Is there any excessive vibrating of the clock while riding normal roadways? I am looking to add a clock and a voltage meter to my dash and I am trying to review all possible options. Thanks.

Thanks for the compliments guys. My goal with any "mod" is a factory installed look. I hope I got close

Here ya go...
Clock is from Clocks4Bikes.com. Most are handlebar mounts but I chose a stick-on because of limited space on the bars and wanted a installed-in-the-factory look. It comes with extra double faced tape and a hand written note from (what I guess is) his wife thanking me for the purchase. The bracket is just brushed aluminum to match the dashboard housing. Using the provided tape, it just attached to the back of the housing. No, vibration not a factor!!

Thank you for the extra picture. It looks very good and gives me a few ideas for my future mods. I agree with your concept to have a factory look for the installation with all additions. Nice work.
