Default speedo repair

Hello all,

I was wanting to get my knuckle speedo repaired and of course I look for all my motorbike guidance here. I called a guy named John Bordas who is supposed to be really good but the number was no good.

Can anyone else point me in the right direction?

Thanks,as always, in advance.

Try the information in this post:

He did move from Colorado to Texas a number of years ago.

Just to throw another name in the mix, Perry Ruiter does great work. I don't know if he's still doing speedometer repairs, but he did some work for me a number of years ago, pleasure to deal with and great work.

Thanks fellas,

I tried calling John yesterday and then realized I got one of the digits wrong so I'll try him again tomorrow.

There's a guy in Phoenix that is supposed to be pretty good, Stan at Vintage Rust Speedometers.

email is [email protected]

(602) 292 7441

He does a lot of Knuckle speedos, with or without cosmetic restoration.

Another vote for Stan at Vintage Rust.

Talked to me about details I was after. Had some spare parts available as some of my original stuff was COOKED.

Square deal. Couple weeks turn-around.
