Finally.......

Post by gamartin »



I've had the Wing for 5 years and finally got it where I wanted it. Three plus years of chemo, slowing me down, but now hoping to ride it a while this year. New tires, all Led lighting, digital gauges and finally replaced the old bouncy speedo and tach with new gps speedometer and digital tach. I love old school, but really love resto-mods, which is how I treated the bike.

Final looks:

Both came off of Amazon, Eling brand.
If you search youtube for 2Jeffs1, he did the same thing with a older Honda 3 wheeler. That's where I got the idea from.
The tach signal wire hooked up to the ignition coil signal wire and set the ratio to .5. The Speedo locks into a signal within 3 seconds of start up for me.

Nice job and good info on the tach/speedo customization. They look way better than most aftermarket ones I have seen. Thanks for sharing and enjoy.
