I am looking for what I believe is called a Fire Creek Ignition Cover panel for my 1500 'Wing.

These were readily available a couple of years ago when I had my previous bike but cannot seem to find one anywhere. I suppose it's possible they are no longer manufactured so maybe someone has one they want to sell?

those are unobtanium now, good luck with finding one.


I just did a world wide search with www.searchtempest.com


and hit no results at all.
that includes all of craigslist, amazon, and ebay.

Thank you for that information. I've spent quite a bit of time doing searches and got nowhere, hence my post. Perhaps one will crop up sometime. Thanks again :frown2:

I remember that guy that had several hundred of them on ebay. I did buy 2 of them, but I am not sure I want to sell one yet. I am trying to find an email from the seller to see who it was.



I have plans for them. If I recall, he was selling them for just over $20. Reason I bought 2.

Thanks for that information, and If you could find an email address that would be great. I live in UK and have tried to locate one over here but, to date, no joy. Thanks

OK folks, , , it will be a great accessory for my BEAST. Now I gotta decide on Voltmeter, and oil pressure gauge, or water temp gauge, , or combo gauge, , , decisions, decisions, decisions, , ,what brand is best, , , how to wire em up, , :)


Dang this is gonna be harder than my lil pea brain can handle (hahaha), I'll post pic when I'm done. I'm hoping it'll be bison brown, , , ,but maybe spray paint will serve that purpose, , dunno yet

I thought about getting a new cover and seeing if someone could use it with a picture of the Firecreek cover to try making 1 similar

I say we start a THREAD asking for help from ANYONE with experience, or contacts, or knowledge on how to do this. I'm on-board with getting something figured out, , ,dunno if its feasible but worth a "meeting-of-the-minds" for sure. It definitely sounds like there is a niche that could be filled, on a small scale. Are the ignition panels on the 1800's similar enough to cover a "need" there too??

I think it would be doable, just need someone with engineering degree in plastic or whatever it needs made from. I am going to go look at price of a new cover as I would want someone to have a good example of size and fit

I am 99.9% sure I can make a 3D drawing in Solidworks if I can get my hands on one to "reverse-engineer" the dims.
