Gauges for my Zephyr “Half a cafe” project

A short notes about Zephyr project gauges.

After my decision to remove stock gauges, I searched for alternative in local stores. I found a lot of cheap Chinese stuff, but only one suitable device. That was a speedometer from some British motorcycle catalogue. It was white-faced electronic gauge with nice designed scale and needle speed indicator, it had digital odometer and LED backlight and it also had polished stainless steel shell and bracket. I liked it as soon as I saw it.

But there was no pair tachometer for this speedometer: nor in sale, nor in catalogue. So I had to do search again. My searches on ebay and google resulted in only a couple of similar tachometers, but with grid scaled to 8K rpm (Zephyr 750 has 12K rpm on it’s tachometer). But I decided not to give up and finally found twin gauge on japan.webike.com , branded as POSH. The parcel with tacho arrived from Japan to Ukraine less in week and I immediately made photo session for gauges. As you can see, despite of different sources, both gauges look like twins. Same high quality, same polished shells, same style of grids…
