    Hey everyone!
    My name is Edgar, I'm a bassist/vocalist in a rock band called Prospect Hill, based out of Massachusetts. I'm also a photographer and graphic designer. One day, when I can afford a bike, I'm getting a flat black harley. Any suggestions? I'm not really educated in bikes, just LOVE photographing them and admiring them.

    THE REASON WHY I JOINED

    I found a couple of motorcycle parts in my basement and was wondering what models they might belong to. I found a black speedo/tach cluster tucked away in the insulation in my basement. I also found what looks to be a muffler...

    If anyone can help me identify these parts, I'd be greatly appreciative!

    Thank you for reading!
    Edgar

    I will guess the speedo/tach came off of a 70's model FX or FXE, big twin before the government got involved with all the speed laws and regulation. I remember the big red high beam light, but can not remember what years. From what I see of the muffler, I guess a 2 cycle motor scooter.

    The speedo/tack cluster looks like what came on the early 70s Sportsters, except that the instruments are 90 degrees to what they should be. My '73 had something very similar.

    Enjoy,
