Help with project - Members have any parts? NON PB
 
My good friend Bird is having his first kid - a boy. Bird had to give up working at a motorcycle shop and go back to plumbing (he is a journeyman) to ensure he can support the kid. Bird rides a nice harley, and I wanted to do something special for the baby. Most people will be giving him stuff he can use right away, I am planning for a little later.

I am looking for a classic bullet shaped bicycle light in chrome, heck any colour would do.

Looking for a tachometer, or any nice small gauges.

If anyone has a small fuel tank looking thingy that would be decent as well.

IF ANYONE has a small plastic engine from a kids toy that might work that would be AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am trying something like this, but from wood:

Would real handle bars be over the top?
I'll check and see what we have for tachometers and small gauges at the ski.

that would be GREAT!

I have a trike I am sacrificing for the seat and handlebars.

I am going to skin the seat with leather/pleather.

I may have a plastic engine on my daughters old 4 wheeler but wont say for sure till I check the garage.

We have these old ones that would need cleaning up and polished or painted. Having a friend looking into a light. Let me know if this is what you wanted?
