It is a spare for the CJ750 (Chinese Ural copy). $60 plus postage. See here -

The chrome is particularly crappy. The whole thing is pretty crappy. I recently bogged up the holes and painted mine with matte black epoxy enamel and it came up pretty good. I have also fitted separate idiot lights, since I couldn't see the LEDs in the Acewell on sunny days. The hole for the speedo is ~ 85mm diam.

The bakelite knob is from an old gas stove - I epoxied the key into it, but it has since broken, so I am back to an ordinary key. The ignition switch that comes with the bucket is a car type one with a spring loaded starter. I like it.

O, and unless you can find some /5 ears to suit the longer bucket, you will have to fabricate something. I made these ears out of stainless.
