    Default Speedometer Repair Services 1984 FLH

    Anyone here had any business dealings with Nichols Speedometer and Instrument Services out of Greensboro NC? I want to get the original speedo on my 84 FLH repaired. Been using an OEM Canadian one (mph/km are reversed) for at least the last 10 years.






    Stewart Warner version will not work (speedo ratio is different). John Boprdas does not repair mine. Only other place I have found is a guy acrooss the pond; however I would prefer to keep it stateside

    Well, Nichols does not repair these.

    Anyone with info on who might please advise. hard to believe I cannot get this thing fixed.

    Did find a place across the pond called gaugerepair.com. Emailed them but they have not gotten back to me. Anyone know about them?

    Probably easier to buy a new one from H-D. Have your local parts man do a dealer inventory search. They also appear on eBay.

    John Bordas ad on p83 of the AMCA magazine, don't know if it's "vintage" enough for him.

    I may be wrong here but I don't think a lot of vintage speedo repair guys want to work on and warrantee them because they have plastic gears in them. If I am wrong my apology and stand corrected.

    John did the speedometer on my 1970 FLH, not sure if he goes up to '84.

    Bordas only works on Stewart Warner type speedos.

    Chris I have been looking on the flea for almost 2 years now and only seen one. There is currently on on there now but mount is broken on one side.

    Anyone across the pond heard of/used www.gaugerepair.com ? Guy's name is Peter Bond with a London UK address. Tried email but no return. Figure to try and call. Just need to make sure it is the early part of the day for their time zone

    A friend of mine bought a new one from Easy Russ a few years ago for $200.00.
