Smile speedo top clamp

hi guys, i changed the handlebar and i couldn't use my home made speedo bracket anymore so i wasnt sure which one to choose, the rockerbox mount at first but then i didnt want an extra wire too visible and i went for this top clamp mount, have a look at the pics, i had never seen it before but maybe you did,i think it gives a clean look, some might not like it, tell me your thoughts
later fellas

Looks good to me. Definitely a clean look. Not sure what the other one looked like, but this one seems fine. I'd keep it.

Looks good. After looking at some of the details, I'd love to see the whole bike actually. Front , Side, Rear if you got em'. Mines totally the opposite direction, but I'm appreciating what you got going, and I think it looks great from what i can see. Please share.

How about some details on the gauge and bracket? Where did you get them and who makes them?

I am on the other side of the big pond, but that might be worth trying to get...something else to add to the want list. They so sell them in MPH. Hmmmm.

Thanks for the information! Again, looks good.
