    Hi S200HRV,

    I like the Old Skool look of your Sporty, it looks very cool.

    I like the clothes peg on your clutch cable - is that where you dry your pants after finding out the difference between sports bike brakes and Harley brakes?

    I can't help you with your speedo issue despite me having owned a 1989 Sportster.

    Also, which speedo is fitted Harley large / small or aftermarket?

    You could try V Twin Mania - here's a few links.....There are more on the website and they give OEM part numbers.

    I've bought from V-Twin Mania on several occasions, great prices and service. They're located in Embra (that's Edinburgh, if you live outside Scotland).

    Thanks Guys,

    I love the look too, considering portawalls, and new seat.
    The Speedo is a diddy 1 it's the drive from front wheel I'm struggling with. Fenland choppers is down the road from me so when I'm back in the UK in June I'm gonna ring and see if I can pop over to talk hardtail games and maybe someone with Harley experience to advise me on Speedo.

    Brakes wise "Gettin'onabit" I was told I'd need a peg to keep the choke out, however turns out I didn't. Was listening to a pub expert lol

    So, why is the peg on your clutch cable and not your choke cable?

    Get a local auto mechanic to make you a suitable cable - probably cheaper than any OEM or aftermarket one, if you know the right bloke.....

    Mind you, who is to say the speedo gearing you have is matched to the drive gearing......????

    Don't need the peg either way, its just there. next time I notice it I'll take it off.


    "Mind you, who is to say the speedo gearing you have is matched to the drive gearing......???? "

    is exactly my issue, I'm hoping someone can help shed some light on what seems at this point 1000 possibilities. many of which mean that having a speedo inaccurate is just as good as not having 1.
