    My '73 Eldorado has been missing its speedo cable since I got the bike. I finally got one and installed it, but would like to know how this cable was originally routed. Can anybody help me with this?

    Hey John,
    On my '74 Eldo LAPD (no tach) I run the cable under the tank, forward along the frame on the right, and then up past the neck.
    I use cable ties to loosely attach it to whatever is nearby (frame, electrical, whatever). I leave the cable ties slack to lessen the kinking of the speedo cable. I only use 2 or so ties.

    It's nice to have a working speedo. My cable breaks about every 8-10 years or so.
