Default Sportster tach kit from HD

Looking at the tach kit offered by HD it only comes in wrinkled black. My speedo and mounting brackets and handlebar clamps are all chrome amd I don't want to mix them. Is they anyway to get and HD tach setup in chrome?

I don't think I want an aftermarket one since they LOOK added on. I already have enough stuff to fit that category on the handlebars, don't want to add to the mess.

Not sure which tach kit you are referring to, but here's a pic of the
HD "combo" speedo/tach guage I went with. Analog tach, digital speed
shown below the tach needle. It would fit into your stock cup.

Drag Specialties has it. Looks exactly like the black wrinkle OEM one but in chrome.

His are still black, but chrome rings. That is a little better, but would not match my speedo. The whole body of my speedo is chrome.

The installation instructions for the HD kit you linked lists the part number for the tach included (5500 rpm redline) as Tachometer (5500 rpm redline)68941-04
That part is available from Boardtracker HD for just under $180
