Yeah the speedometer was the main reason why I bought the bike. I had always wanted a retro one, and I had found some online but I never got around to ordering one. I went to a friends house and found this bike in his shed and bought it off of him for $20. the speedometer needed a new cable and a gear for the wheel, but somehow my friend had a twin of this bike and he let me take the parts from it because the casing for the speedometer on that one was broken.

I'll be posting pictures of the finished product here in a couple of weeks, right now the project is on standby because I had to special order the tires and tubes (shop didn't have tires on site to fit British rims), and I just ordered my engine kit 6/5/09.

I attached some pictures of the bike half assembled if anyone is interested.
