I’ve been thinking about doing this conversion for a while now, but not had the know how or confidence to get started. It might be best to get someone more qualified than myself to convert, but I wondered if there was anyone who had done it, how hard it was to do and/or if there was already a post on the forum that documented it. I have looked for previous posts with no succes. Any help or advice is welcome
David, maybe it is me but a bit more info may help. From your post I take it you have an LM2 but want to fit the speedo/tach/warning lights console from another LM model but which one did you have in mind? Sorry if I got that completely wrong
This is easy enough to do David. I’m in the middle of my ‘mock 1’ conversion at the moment.
The top yoke on the lemans 2 has lugs for handlebars. Its the same top yoke as the T3. The cockpit/clock surround is bolted to it. One of these will bolt straight on. Aluminium housing that will take both your speedo and tacho.Gutsibits and stein dinse sell these.
If you want the ‘mark 1’ look you can just cut the handlebar lugs off the yoke and fill/paint it to make it flush… (I can put up a pic tomorrow of mine)… A T3/lemans binacle will then bolt to the two smaller lugs on the front of the yoke. The forks on a mark one are narrower so a top yoke from one of these will not fit a mark 2…
As for wiring this should be straight forward enough although you will have left over voltmeter and clock connections…

Youi could keep the lugs and use ace bars, or look at the bars fitted to the newer Guzzis of the V11 sport/1200 sport /Billabiao they use “regular” bars as opposed to “clip ons” as clip ons do not work for everyone.
