Correct Speedo?
« on: 05.03. 2012 08:09 »
I've just bought a 1960 Golden Flash which is fitted with a modern speedo, I know that finding the correct one is going to be a challenge but nothing ventured, nothing gained - can anyone tell me what the correct specifications are for the speedo on this bike?

I would not worry too much about the exact model number because as can been seen on the Speedograph Richfield site if you provide them with details it can be correctly calibrated for you bike.          http://www.speedograph-richfield.com/html/calibration_form.html

Thanks for the info, I suspect it's not going to be cheap to get the correct speedo but it does look possible.

For what its worth the speedo that Kiwipom added the link to looks to be reasonable value. ?325 is about AUS $400 and thats cheap.

You can get old ones repaired or recalibrated but its expensive. Last year I sent one to a instrument specialist here in AUS and it was $300 just to get it serviced and when I got it back it didnt work, but thats another story.

Just a note to anyone thinking of disposing of the speedo internals thinking that they are no good to anybody... Everything is usable and can be repaired or just cleaned up. I'm after a replacement stripped cog wheel... At the moment the speedo is working okay as I've simply turned the cog wheel up the other way, it's working on just a millimetre and a half of cog.  *lol* This was a new old stock WD M20 speedo, I should have cleaned out all the dried factory grease inside before using it.

Thanks for all the advice everyone, I've bought a speedo on eBay but will need to get it serviced/recalibrated. Who are the best people to do this?
