    I would like to know the total height of the hole of the cable passage.

    Looks the same as my evo softail neck 82mm from the bottom to the top of the section where the speedo cables goes through if that helps any.

    Thank you for the compliment, but I do not do anything extraordinary.
    I try to go to the end.
    I will make inquiries to the sites

    A French friend gave me far from a panhead frame, we are not far from the measurement of Independent 84.

    it is better if you measure between tank mounts , as the measurment from the centre of speedometer cable hole is not as important..
    put the correct diameter dowel or pipe in the speedo hole as pictured& drop the dash casting over it, measure your tank mount points(on the tanks you are going to use)
    front to rear that will tell you where to weld the rear mount,and dont worry to much about the height of the cast dash mount as the speedometer & ignition switch can be shimmed to the correct height to mount the dash cover corrctly....

    Thank you for the explanations.
    First I would weld the speedometer mount and drill and then weld the two back legs.
    At home I have 2 halves tank.

    Good work panhead....different beast, but it took me around 3 years to rebuild my '56 Series 1 Land Rover....all with nos parts....a lot of that time was spent actually finding bits and pieces, but once i did, and I got hold of original workshop manuals, well - patience is the key. I look forward to seeing the glory when you're done. Clubs are often good sources of knowledges.....

    Maintenir le bon travail mon ami....

     Thank you for the encouragement.

    Of course, I took the time to make things right.

    Whith forums; i ask questions, then i reflected and finally i took action.

    I am lucky as to have a friend that is good advice.

    I hope to give envy to some person to do the same.

    I try to live my dream.

    You are living the dream, Panhead - well played. I'd love to see some progress pics - or the finished deal - I guess my real love is vintage machinery. I am lucky to have a few mates who are very good machinists....so if a part is unobtainable, these guys can generally make the part for me....and often it's better than an original. 

    For the vintage Harleys, there used to be a mob in my home town that were associated with the Military Jeep Club, and they had a bit of NOS stuff for WW2 bikes as I recall. Just another thought for you in terms of finding bits and pieces where you are - maybe your local MJC might have the same kinda setup.....I gather HD parts were interchangeable over long periods of time, so that makes things a bit easier.

    I launched the project for 2 reasons:
    The first:
    Find vintage pieces for the set.
    Then use the aftermarket catalogs for new internal parts and safety.
    I do not want to have such an engine failure at the first start .
    The second :
    With the Internet I have information about the specifics such as the frame.

    For me it's too much honor, it makes me uncomfortable because guys like me there are probably a lot.
    I do what can.

    I found so far thanks to the bushing that I bought on the net.
    My project is progressing slowly.

    There is no end play for the moment.
