Looks Pretty Neat Eh?
Leather flying jacket and helmet are resting on the seat cushion, the red panel near the throttle is the
mount for a handheld radio that is wired into a fixed antenna on the aft fuselage.  Since this photo
was taken the gage just above the red panel has been relocated to the lower right edge of the panel.  
Tachometer, airspeed and temperature instruments are color coded for quick reference. I am running
out of room for stuff!
Original panel when my Air-Bike was built in
1998.

CHT gage has been relocated to just
below the Mag. switches, note the
color coding.  Also above the altimiter
is a Trip Card listing airports, runways,
and identifiers; sort of like a "Jepsen
Card" (??!!?) for VFR that I use on
trips.
