  • Junk GT Hawk speedo needed - Found!

    I found a 160 MPH speedometer a few months ago hidden in a complete dash from a Superhawk on Ebay. As I was cleaning up the lens,.. I juggled,...yipes, DROPPED the glass and it broke in two.

    I thought no big deal I just go down to the glass shop and get another lens cut. Well it turns out that today's clear glass is not so clear but is quite green and you could tell the difference.

    I was hoping someone out there might have a absolutely junk GT Hawk speedo hanging around with a good glass in it that they could sell me.

    Thanks, Allen

    What about making one out of a clear plastic?

      Allen:

      I sent you an email. I have to wait for almost 6' of snow to melt.

        If you will measure the glass, I have a bunch of spare lenses. I should have one to fit it.

          Same here, Allen. What diameter is it? Glad you found a 160 speedometer, at least. [8D]

            How about from a junk Tachometer? They are the same...



            Just get me an address via e-mail...

              The lens size is 3 5/8" across and 1/8" thick

              And yes Ray a Junk Tachometer Lens would work just fine as well. I send you an email.

              Thanks to both!

                  Thanks all for the replies,

                  Ray is sending me the lens along with a NICE differential 3.54 Twin Traction tag.

                  Thanks Ray!
