New to this Forum, need Speedometer for 650 Vstar
Hey, Guys n Gals. I'm new to this forum, but I've been riding for several years. I'm a retired military mechanic.
First bike was an XVS650 Custom. I've had Harleys, several Yamahas, a Kawasaki and a Honda since then. I fix them up, ride them for a bit then sell them. Rinse and repeat. I just picked up a 99 XVS650 Classic in really bad shape from having sat outside for years. I have her torn down and I'm going to do a full resto mod, fully personalized to me. I'm keeping this one. She's going to be Army green with large ammo cans for saddle bags. I'm going to do the details like the ground support equipment I used to work on. I'm not doing a WW2 Harley replica or anything like that. Pictures to come later.
So, the main reason I joined the forum is my speedometer was severely sun damaged - the plastic inside was peeling up really bad and blocking view of the Odometer, so I opened it up to get all the loose plastic out of there and the speedo needle just dissolved. So... I either need a new needle or a whole new speedo, and I'm hoping someone here has one sitting around, cause I'm not finding one on ebay.
I have Paypal and I'm ready to purchase now if anyone has one available. Thanks!
