has anyone come across an LED replacement bulb for the indicator bulbs in the speedo/neutral/highbeem? i was going to build one last night that was brighter, the speedo is pretty dim at night, but figured someone may have come across an LED replacemen?
I've had the rare privilege of seeing this project progress from nothing more than an idea, into what Jim holds in his hands today. It actually took so long to get started, that I wondered if he ever would. Start it he did though, and only those who've attempted fabricating something like this will really appreciate all that has gone into this project...
... and this is just the beginning!!
Stay tuned to this thread to see what Jim has "up his sleeve"! Haha!
Jim might drive some crazy with his endless questions and thousands of pictures from umpteen angles... but he has a vision and a plan. The plan may take some twists and turns (what plan doesn't!!), but he'll make it to the end.
Well done Sir! Steady On!

For me to move ahead I need to source some rear sets, and get going on the fuel tank.
I would like to finish welding the rear set mounts so I have some decisions to make. The H2r had a small loop on the frame made of tube for the foot pegs and I may do that but it's real old school. I also had a look at Drewski's pegs on the Mongrel, They look like a nice set with a simple mount.
As for the tank. I'm going to take a shot at building one with aluminium. If I bought an Airtech tank it would probably have some fitment issues due to the dimensions I used for the frame.
The only way to start building the tank is to first get visual perspective so I mocked up a shape from cardboard.
Next I needed some real measurements so I decided to work with foam to make up a mockup of the tank that I can verify fitment and clearances with.
Next I ordered the rubber tank dampers from Andre and started to trim and shape.
Now I have everything I need to make the templates that will be used to cut the aluminium.
