    So I wrecked my 2001 superglide last august and am just getting her back together for spring.

    Unfortunately, I think I may have gone wrong already. I figured as long as I am buying new parts I might as well go all out and modify a bit with a street bob gas tank to bring my speedometer down onto the tank. I bought the tank, on ebay, a dash cover with indicator lights and ignition covered (I would like to keep them where they are), a fat bob speedometer to fit, and a dash mounting kit.

    Now that I have purchased these parts, it looks like I need a cover plate that goes under the mounting kit; I can't find this piece and I am becoming increasingly pessimistic that everything will go together as nicely as I had thought. Any tips on how I can make it work?
