Post by crazy4557 »

Anyone out there know of someone who can do a good job of refurbishing speedo/tacho?
Tried Waterbuffallo but no response probably touring at the moment.

I'm in touch. I'd forgotten about his services so hopefully he will be sorting mine out.

Nice job. What cost are you looking at?

All depends on condition of the clocks, and what you want doing.. Just clocks or full refurbishment.. Every part on this sold set was done.. Base powder coated, clocks stripped, inner bezels repainted, wiring checked and new sleeving, re-chromed backs, and new bulbs, and screws in all.. So should never have to fight getting the bulb holders out to change them..

It appears that Allan only does his restoring via facebook now - viewtopic.php?f=36&t=12031&p=93712#p93712
