Default 1969 XLCH Speedo

I read that John Bordas in Denver is the go-to guy for show bike speedo restorations. Mine is not a show bike and I just want it to work. The drive and the cable are fine.

Can anyone suggest a less expensive alternative for my speedo repair? It is a 150 mph AC stock unit. Thanks.

150mph is stock, and Bordas will do just a "mechanical" restoration if that is what you want.

I have used John Bordas. He does nice work! But you won't find him in Denver, he lives in texas!

I use John for all my speedos, but if you just want it serviced, you should be able to find someone local. Or, I could sell you one that works. Let me know via pm if you want to go that way.
