R100/7 Speedo/Tach Rubber Rings

Hello,

I need to find some new tach/speedo rubber rings, mine are all cracked and messed. Does anyone know where I can find some? Thanks.

Capital Cycle sells them for $12.95 each. I bought some and they fit as advertised. http://www.capitalcycle.com/Intrument-Parts_c_2671.html

Edit: This is what the hood from Capital City looks like on my tach. It's good enough for me:


I mounted these with 3M weather stripping adhesive, left over from installing a convertible top.

I've seen some that weren't made of the same material - I'm guessing - because they were kind of floppy. And I've seen them where they've got casting lines on the outside.

I haven't bought any new ones, so don't know if the OEM are good or not. Or the aftermarket either.

I would like to know if there are any faithful reproductions that don't cost fifty bucks a pair.
