Hey all.
I just installed an oil pressure guage on my 02 FXDX.
I have all the plumbing and fittings done and now I am having a problem finding a bracket to mount the 1.5" guage to the rocker box. Can anyone direct me to a bracket for this guage? 1.5" guage body with 1/8" nipple to plumbing.
By the way, I am NOT interested in anything over $25.00 because I plan to sand blast the bracket and black it out to match the FXDX scheme.
Thanks in advance for the help.
Party On!!!

Arlen MESS is right!!!!
Would make an instant MESS of my wallet and most likely my marriage with Christmas 2 weeks away when my wife saw the expense. LOL
The Ness set is nice but I have a blacked out bike and a showy chrome mount just wont do, and I'll be damned if I'll sand blast and blackout a $110.00 mount. I fabricated one in my shop and blacked it. Thanks anyway all.

Ohhh, by the way---
Custom Chrome oil filled pressure guage, black carbon look= $24.00
Misc pipe fittings from Home Depot= $3.18
Dewalt 1-9/16" bimetal hole saw= $10.62 (add to tool box)
3/8" Aluminum stock from scrap yard = $1.96 (enough for 5-6 brackets)
1/8" Oil pressure line and fittings kit at Autozone = $4.65
Had the black paint
Have a band saw that cuts aluminum
Total custom job with concealed plumbing that runs the frame and under the tank and is exposed 3" from behind carb to guage.
Heres a tip (use shrink wrap to cover the brass fittings Looks Great!!!)
