Thanks! I'll try to take some better photos of it when I get some time this weekend. I thought I would never finish it as I kept running into issues I didn't plan for. Like having to switch over to a bonneville throttle cable and controls. I did take it out for a quick shake down lap around the house and my first impressions is that this bike will me a monster in the twisties once the back end is sorted out with the proper shocks and the daytona rear wheel on it.

What are you doing for a speedometer?


Did the older 7/8" Bonny controls connect right up to the thruxton harness?

I plan on using a gps sensor speedometer.

GPS SPEEDOMETER

I believe that they did. The left hand controls came from a daytona but the kill switch was from a bonneville.

Autometer sells a gps kit that can hook up to any electric speedo they make. But after I buy the gauge and gps kit its more that the speedhut speedo.

I do believe I can make it fit. I can trim off 3mm around the stock rubber gauge ring to fit the larger 3 3/8" speedhut unit. I will have to fabricate the back of the speedhut unit to attach the stock unit housing once I have the speedhut unit in hand.

Wow, that's awesome! I've seen a few CBR front end swaps but I didn't know the Daytona front end would work as well.

Did it require any custom parts to do it? Other than drilling the steering stops? New bearings?
