Ouch! - I get the impression that this was years ago -
things are bound to improve with time. Did you speak to him
at the time and give him a chance to resolve the problems or
did you keep quiet and wait until the opportunity arose to
tell the whole world?!!!!!
Steve/Kevin - I wish you luck with the venture. I'm not in
on this one either as I got hold of the real thing just last
weekend (no names as requested but thanks again mate - I
know you follow this site - another example of Hen owners
helping each other out!)
Summer's coming guys - safe riding! Steve

Fellow brand X and H owners;  

This sounds like it could be a good way to finally get the
correct ammeters, they are very hard to find.  Fortunately,
I have a very nice NOS 10-0-10 weston ammeter with bracket,
correct for my series 20 Excelsior, so I'm not in on this
deal.  However, I would like to mention this:  I hope that
if Kevin Flannigan does produce these, that they are better
quality than some of his first units.  I purchased an
ammeter from Kevin for my 31 Chief some years ago.  It
looked pretty good, although the face didn't seem to be
quite the correct shade, and the printing was not as crisp
as it should be. Overall, though it would be OK.  A few
years later, I finally hooked it up to use it and discovered
hat it was a 20-0-20, or even a 30-0-30 ammeter with a
10-0-10 face installed!  This means that the meter barely
moves with a Splitdorf generator pushing on it and was not
accurate at all! I was a bit dissapointed, because I expect
things to work properly and look good!  No ofense intended
to Kevin, just hope these things can be made to look and
work accurately. I understand he has a much better unit
available now.

On a lighter note, anyone interested in an Indian ammeter, I
ave one for sale or trade! 

Keep the greasy side down!

Fellow KJers

I am constantly asked if I have extra ammeters.  I don't and
s time they get made.  Kevin Flanagan will do it but he
needs $5000 to make the first one and neither he nor I am
fronting the money.  I will put up the first $250 and am
looking for 19 other peolpe to do the same.  THIS IS THE
LAST TIME I AM UNDERTAKING THIS PROJECT.  Please send me a
check or postal PAYABLE to Kevin Flanagan and I'll give them
 Kevin at Oley.  If I don't get sufficient response I'll
return them to you.  To save Kevin, I will be point of
contact for questions/comments.  These will be high show
quality gauges like his Indian/Harley stuff.  We don't know
but finished gauges could be $300-400, maybe less.  The
$5000 is an R&D expense that must be recouped through gauge
sales in addition to the cost of each gauge.  This will be
prorated based on the number of gauges made.  Obvoiously a
presale # will reduce this cost per gauge.  Also let me know
w many you'll want.  I'm taking two.  I'll be sure to make
arrangements with Kevin to make sure the contributors are
taken care of first before the tire kickers want them after
their made.  I'll also see if he will discount them to
contributors with a reduced mark-up before he sets the
retail donkey price but this is strictly his call since he
is doing all the work.

Many of you know people with KJs who do not subscribe to or
