Here are a couple of pictures of the last set I restored. I can replace your dial faces or not, re-calibrate from 85 mph to 150 mph (but I cannot re-calibrate from 150 to 85) replace the needles. I can totally disassemble the entire movement, including the magnet shaft and bushing, replace the grease or lack of grease. I also can "bleach" the odometer and trip odometer tenth wheels. The housings are always cleaned, the light deflectors re- glued back in place. What would you like to have done? This set had the faces and needles replaced, re-calibrated from 85 to 150, bleached the tenth wheels, completely disassembled and cleaned re-lubed and reassembled. Thank you Terry!

They do look good Mike, thanks again. For the purists, I had Mike leave the original mileage on the speedo as it’s still the original, just refurbished. Mike modified the internals to make it a 150 speedo like the 79s along with rebuilt internals on all the gauges, face plates and needles. This cover will get some use whenever it’s parked in the sun.

Either garage is too small or we have too many bikes. Or Momma's car needs to go outside.
