i think we spend to much time worrying about it looking right i do what it was made for riding it and enjoying it not just to looking at it and i have been doing that for over 50 years and i will keep on as long as i can because one day we won't be here and it wont matter :!:

I've got a an early war Jaegar speed, which works, and the speedo gearing and gearbox are all in there. Finding it a struggle to get a jaegar cable and I need to figure out a mount for it.

..OR I can run with the trusty Garmin Edge 200 bicyle GPS. No wires. has backlight and does hours ona single charge. looks a bit out of place tho

Do you have difficulty seeing the GPS display while riding.
