Hi does anyone have any idea to where I can get my speedo on a 1973 750 Commando repaired or replaced?
I used a guy name Pople ,advertises under another business name in the back of the mags. good work ,not silly prices.
I used David Woods for a 1957 Smiths on a 350 Bullet. Came back as new and have had no problems at all but it was a while ago (£100). Assume he could do a Commando. Chichester. 01243 542521. Trust helps Hugh
If it's a Smith's then all the previous comments apply, if it's a Veglia then good luck, it's not made to be repaired so you need to find someone who has new internals to swap.
I have just had the Smiths rev counter and speedo (both magnetic) from my 1968 Velo clubman! serviced, and re-calibrated by Stuart Walker at Classic Speedometers (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Very pleased with price and service, new glass and bezel etc, they even converted trip mechanism from side to bottom entry, with a longer adjuster.
Hope this helps

I've used Ashley Pople of Speedo Repairs very good service
A. Gagg & Sons near Nottingham. Excellent, old school, reasonably priced. Established 1900....
I recently used Stuart Walker at Classic Speedometers. Quality job at a good price. I didn’t go the whole refurbishment, face and dials left original.
Hi all, I asked a few weeks ago as to where to get a speedometer repaired. Some of you suggested Classic Speedometers in Mansfield , Stuart Walker is who i spoke to and sent off my speedo & 3 weeks later it arrived back looking like new. Now fitted to Commando 750 & working like new. I would definitely recommend this company.
+1 for Stuart Walker - the full works including painting inside & out is about £120
