Metric Custom Creations Dash

Has anyone been looking for one of these? Not sure I'm gonna use it. I'm thinking about doing a drawing and whoever wins could have it for $25 shipped. This is for the dash only (gauge cluster not included) If anyone's interested let me know by the 4th, mounting hardware included. I think KM made these?

Hey, that's pretty neat. Hadn't seen anything like that for the 750. I don't really have a use for it though.

I only understand what I don't understand.

Is that made to go with a specific screen?

Looks neat. I'm going for less dash not more personally, but I am sure somebody will want it.

Yes, I made them:

I sold them for $65.00 They are made from 16 gauge stainless steel. Will fit windscreens. The use, as in my photos above, was to have a space to mount extra gauges. (I put a voltmeter, a clock, a switch for my driving lights, and a small LED light)

I think I sold only 50 of them. So in some ways ....they are collectors items....

If you look at the pictures in the link you might be able to tell how it's mounted

There a drawing here that shows how its mounted:

There's a bracket that fits under the tach and speedo that clamps the dash down on top of the gauges with a single bolt.
