    No, sorry.

    FWIW, this is an answer to a question no one would ask.

    First, there is an oil temp read-out in the RID of every R12 of which I'm aware.

    Second, this would not read oil temp (since it is in the vapor space under the valve cover).

    Third, this would not read head temps (same reason).

    Finally, even if you know what the temp of the atmosphere in the valve cover vapor space is, what useful information does that give you? I can't think of anything.

    Galaxy Custom is a shop somewhere in Russia; it's their R12.

    +1 on all the above.

    But it looks really cool...

    Assuming it is temp, not barometric pressure, sound pressure, or a rain gauge.

    Assuming since it is on a custom bike made by galaxy customs that it was fabricated.

    You could start here:

    https://www.denniskirk.com/H400141.s...FQ4EnQodolEAUA

    You will have to remove the dipstick, as it might interfere with the valve train.

    A slightly more useful approach would be to attach an air temp gauge like this:

    http://www.cruisercustomizing.com/15...r/part/RP-DSTW

    To one of these:

    http://www.amazon.com/BMW-Genuine-R1.../dp/B004LXZU7A

    Attaching a clock is also a possibility.

    Of course, all of this information is available here:

    The bike you are looking at is here: http://thebikeshed.cc/2012/11/13/galaxy-r1200r/

    You might contact the custom shop to make one for you.
    I would be interested to hear their explanation of its purpose. I am guessing it is nonfunctional as is much of the design of this bike. IMHO
