Default Dash Board, solar recharger and 6/12V batt set up

Got this idea from RusticoRay. He has Velcro on his gas tank and mounts his GPS on it. When he gets any where, he pops it off and slips it in his pocket. We rode down a seriously bumpy dirt road and the GPS didn't budge. So I thought I would make a dash board and mount a speedo, tach and a GPS. Coming out kinda cool so far. Gonna do a solar recharger on 2 6V batts so as to have both 6 an' 12 volts by running them in series. Cig lighter mounted in an amo case that will also house the batts. So can recharge GPS, cell phone and will have a radio.

I went with a pc of old cedar but not sure I will keep it that way. Was going for old world look but kinda looks like I took a pc of scrap wood and stained it an' drilled some holes. What I actually did was take a pc of old scrap wood, stained it and drilled some holes. Will be a anolog speedo to the rt of the GPS and a toggle kill switch. Also an unconnected warp drive switch. (Can not be wired as it is illegal here)

I am going to mount the painted amo case in front of the steering tube and below the handle bars. Hanging but supported by the forks.

Thoughts, suggestions or jokes?
