Dash base identification

#1

Post by 47str8leg »

So this base came with my Panhead project bike with a military switch. I’ve checked palmers and images on the internet and can’t find anything that matches it.
It has the standard gen/oil light sockets above the key switch but then it has an additional light socket up to the left of those. I can’t see it helping for a speedo at all so I’m kind of stumped. Can’t find any images of covers that would “shed any light” as to its heritage.

The hard part to find is the Neutral lense. Dashes are pretty plentiful, most are missing the green lense
