I think I may still have one I didn't use. I will search as soon as my back will let me. Will let all know when I can.

How much are they going for? I see where people get them but not how much given for 1. I hope I can be in the running depending upon price

The listing you're looking for has ended.





Honda GL1500 Gauge Panels
Condition:
New

Ended:
Sep 23, 2016, 01:50:18 PM PDT

Price:
US $28.00


This was 2 years ago from eBay.

The "supply-and-demand" rule applies since firecreek is defunct and no other "supplier" has stepped up. (YET!!)


Combine that with the fact that if you're lucky enough to find/buy a "USED" OEM panel, you're probably in the $30-50 range.

would almost be worth taking to a plastics place to see if they could make these before using it if I can get 1

I agree, , , its DEFINITELY, worth taking a moment to evaluate the "risk v. reward" factor. And if a similar idea were available for the 1800's, , ,and there was some interest among the riders, , , ,THAT would be kicker for me, , , I'd be IN with both feet.

There is a plastic molding company that has been posting an ad in our local newspaper about making items. Maybe I should check them out and see if this is do-able???

When I got my bike, it had this Fire Creek panel on it, in the factory blue. It fit so well I assumed it was a factory part. I looked to see if it was and found it was aftermarket. I guess I got lucky.

Yeah you did!! The PO did you a big favor. Matching colors are rumored to have been $75-85 at first, , ,but went up about double near the end of the inventory. ALSO, , looks like you have "firecreek" gauges on it too, , so add another $100-150 probably.


Is it on an Interstate, or Aspy?? Had to ask because your "profile" bike is an 1100 and I thought these panels only fit the 1500.

The Firecreek panel arrived on Monday!!! Absolutely PRISTINE condition (Thanks again John!)


I've gotten "feedback" from most all the riders (that I could find) who have experience with these.



I'm in the process of locating the original "molds" so that I don't have to re-invent the wheel.


If anyone has any ideas/suggestions, feel free to PM me, , ,all info is appreciated.


BTW, , ,anyone who is interested in one, , , just gimme a PM and I can judge how many folks are interested.
