Hi Folks
Can anybody recommend a firm or person to recondition my Chrono speedo off my late 50s Ariel please.
Cheers Tony

http://www.chronometrics.co.uk have had two done over the last ten years , phoned and booked a time and in one hour or so he serviced/ repaired my own while I had a walk about. It’s just outside Nottingham and he does a postal service as well.
Sorry for the wrong web site so just updated, it was very late.

I'll second that one. I sent off my speedo from my square 4 (which wasn't working), and he emailed me back to say it wasn't actually the right speedo for the bike. He re-calibrated it for the bike, and reconditioned it, and I had it back as new a week later. Excellent job.

The link to the web site says West Sussex not Nottingham is it the correct link

The link actually goes to the site of David and Philip Woods. David has just refurbished the Chronometric speedo for my Red Hunter at a very fair price and a very fast turnaround. As a bonus he has recalibrated it so it will read correctly with the PA ratio gears thus saving me either changing the layshaft in the gearbox or paying a ridiculous sum for a PA speedo. It has a right angle drive, so fits with my panel tank.
I have no experience of the Nottingham firm but I believe it was the one featured on Henry Cole's Motorbike Show on TV last week - still available on Channel 4 catchup.

Oops yes I did post the wrong web site and have just changed it, must of been a senior moment or Jameson’s influence.

I am accustomed to verbal abuse at AOMCC gatherings, particularly from those I know well, but Bob Ward's post is a first.

Thanks everybody for the reply. The one off the bike is like a fossil so it will be a 5 minute job.
