    Ugh. I'm going to start indiscriminately cutting things and drilling holes in things until I have something that will hold these gauges to this bike.

    Try the small bracket bolts in the cup bolt holes.....remove cups of course....
    Won't be quite as pretty, but will be functional....

    You have early forks without pinch bolts on 1970, clocks are probably for a 73? Clocks will fit but need different brackets. You may be able to just dismantle the stuff you have to make it all work

    I have to admit a point of ignorance that has been exposed through this thread; I didn't realize that the thing holding together the two gauges I have was, in fact, a mounting bracket. Now that I understand what I'm looking at a little better, I'm a little more hopeful that I can arrive at some kind of solution. Also, I'm building a race bike here...I don't care about a speedometer, I don't care if it's pretty, and I don't care if it's "stock." With that knowledge, do either of you gentlemen have an guidance as to my best bet in affixing that tachometer to my handlebars!?

    Unless bike is just about finished and running, tach mount is one of the last things to do. You need to set it so you can see it when your 'in a tuck'.(you should be 'too busy' to look when cornering or 'in the pack') It may well need moving forwards and being tilted, stock position is more suited to stock bars .I would get an electronic tach, even a cheap one from China will probably be more accurate than stock? Or,get a piece of 1/8" alloy plate or angle as it's easier to cut and bend than steel.
