    Hey Everybody,

    My recent purchase last year, a 2009 California Vintage, had the dreaded bad speedometer problem.

    The factory unit is NLA (No longer available) and many people said that the unit could not be repaired.

    NOT TRUE!

    This gentleman repairs all sorts of instrumentation and motorcycle speedos, including vintage stuff.

    It is not cheap ($298) and includes return shipping with exceptional packing to protect it.

    He did a fantastic job, replaced many parts, and guaranteed the unit for 1 year.

    I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM.

    Nice find Scott! Always good to have this info here.
    I know this assembly has mostly plastic internals. Do you know if he replaced it with the same or is it more durable post repair?

    Thanks Todd!

    Love sharing resources.

    Joel actually replaced cheap broken plastic parts with quality Japanese metal parts! He even called me to discuss what he did. Also even replaced some cheap mounting screws with quality ones from Japan.

    That’s why he guarantees them for 1 year! (On a 12 year old speedo in my case).

    I also have a good guy that repairs speedos in the SoCal area and that is "Joe's Speedometer" in Reseda, Ca. Now it has been 3+years so, I haven't checked on whether he is still in business but he restored my 1970 Ambassador's speedo in excellent fashion for $250. His services might have gone up but, check him out if you are in the SoCal area.

    Thanks for posting Scott. Very helpful for those with older analog units. I had a problem with my 2014 California dash and found ONE place that could resolve it; Carmo Electronics in The Netherlands.

    Looks like Levine works with only the older analog instruments.

    No worries. Yes, Joel Levine only works on the analog mechanical instruments as far as I know.
