84 Goldwing Fuel Guage

Is it possible to add a simple fuel guage to my Aspencade using the sensor that is on tank? I need something to show how much gas is in tank until I can figure out the digital guage . I screwed it up by having wires reversed and did not realize it until after running several times. I changed fuel tank and reversed wires by mistake. the guage worked before I changed tank. I want to finish bike soon to get it ready to sell. I also need to find antennas for the bike as they are missing as well

Just the antenna(s) or the mounting bracket(s) as well?

Sure you could find just about any gauge and wire it in. A hot lead to 1 side and the other to the sending unit. May not be accurate but it would work.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

on the antennaes, do you need the original? I use an electric hidden antenna under the seat. Powered by the accessory position and plugs into the regular antenna jack. Works great and is out of sight.

Does the same antenna operate cb and radio? If an electric is much cheaper I would be ok with that, hmm thinking about cb I don't remember seeing a mic on it, how does that work?

I just looked, the push to talk is a red button? kinda dark out there but it was a push button.
I have never used a cb on a bike before and I don't have any kind of helmet comms to even try it out, the same antenna works on radio and cb? still waiting to hear about that

Honda used a shared radio/cb antenna.
