Speedo is bad

Postby Baunix63 » Thu May 23, 2013 2:37 pm



Seers,

looking for a Speedo, mine doesn´t work now. In europe you cannot get one, not even used one´s
Best would be an canadian speedo in km/h.
So, if somebody has such stuff please contact because of costs and shipping costs.

Made some calls, there is a company for repairing old school speedos, gauges, etc
Ok, that will cost about $120,- but then it´s like new. It will last 12 weeks, oops.
I´m now mounting a SIGMA bicycle computer, using the original bulbs as light for that. The SIGMA goes up to 187mph :D
I´ll post some photographs, when I´m ready and it is working.
It is a little bit tricky, cause there must be a gap between magnet and sensor of 5mm.
