Where to find a less bulky speedometer?

I'm sure theres a thread for this somewhere but don't feel like looking. I have some upside down clubmans on my '01 Bonnie, and I HATE how the speedo sticks up real high, kills the "lines" of the bike so to speak. Other than putting on a random used one, anywhere to find cool Triumph aftermarket ones? Don't care if it has a tach, just mainly concerned about the speedo and a tripometer so I know how much gas I have in the bike since I just go by it when I fill my bike up. Idiot light aren't really a neccesity either but would still be nice to have. Just something that sits lower or at least level with my clubmans. Thanks for any help! =)

Check Benjie Cafe Racer too. They have an integrated headlight and speedo bucket.

Dime City Cycle has both 1.9" and 2.5" speedos & tacs depending on how small you want to go.

I really like this speedo from Dime City Cycles http://www.dimecitycycles.com/vintag...t-37-0002.html .. Without actually looking at my bike at the moment can someone tell me where I mount this? Is it basically plug and play from the stock one or no? And how hard is the wiring? I can't picture too many details of my stock one without actually going down in the basement and looking.. Thanks again for any help.. it is much appreciated guys! =)

Has anyone installed that Acewell? Does it work with older Triumphs too?
