Replacing the stock Speedo/Tach on a K100

My 1985 BMW K100 and I got into a wreck yesterday. A car heading my direction didn't see me and turned across traffic in front of my bike. I laid it down at about 40 mph before impact. Aside from a sprained knee and some road rash, I'm fine. The bike itself has very little damage, but the speedo cluster's cast iron brackets broke clean off, leaving only the cable to hold it on.

For the time being, I've used zip ties to keep it steady to the fork.

This bike used to have a full fairing, but I removed that in favor of a naked bike look. The instrument cluster always was an eyesore, sticking up into nowhere.

Does anyone have any idea where I can start looking for a replacement? I've tried Googling for replacement speedos, but I'm not finding much. I don't mind doing some custom work myself to get something mounted to the frame. I just need something sporty looking with a low profile, preferably something that will be as "plug in play" compatible with my existing wiring as possible.

Thanks in advance for any advice you've got, and stay safe out there!
