Default Re: Mechanical speedometer

I had to laugh at your last sentance. Reminded me of the older Harleys. They wern't that good for long run trips and they constantly leaked oil but looked great parked in front of the BAR.

I also got lucky and scored a retro speedo made by Stewart and Werner in the 70s much more accurate and needle doesnt fly around all over. Them cheapos are not designed for high speed and vibration. Good luck, hey they look cool when your parked.
