I have a problem finding a speedo to fit my 45 project. Someone certainly went to a lot of effort to f*ck up a good frame, sometime in the past.... The latest problem is that the channel through the top tube for the speedo cable is blocked, plugged and welded up.

The bike has a dash because it has stock tanks and 16" wheels, what else could it have? Anyway, mist if the parts came with the bike. It has Shovelhead forks and a 2:1 gear drive unit.

I've found a unit that fits onto the end of the cable that sends a signal fir an electronic speedo. The question now, is to find a 5" type speedo that fits... any suggestions?
Shoot, a man could have a good weekend in Dallas with all that stuff...
