Speedy cables

Post by simonjrwinter »

Emailed, the above company about converting a mechanical speedo to electronic ( a simple enough task)
Not cheap but they told me that from receiving the speedo to sending it back would be 20-25 WEEKS!!!!!
6 months to convert a speedo? That’s madness and makes a mockery of their name!

They used to be a fantastic company when based in the London area. You could send the speedo to them and expect it to be returned within a couple of days. They even sent you an invoice asking for payment within 7 days. (Pre card payment).
The "Good old days", long gone unfortunately.

They are totally crap - retreive your speedo and then send it to Richfield:

Nice guys, old school style service. Can't recommend them enough (and no I am not a share holder).

I certainly haven’t sent it to speedy cables!
It’s significantly cheaper to buy a new electronic speedo and sender!

Also agree that Speedograph Richfield are a good company to deal with. I had a similar experience dealing with Speedy Cables, unfortunately.

Another company I came across for speedos was Flannery - not used them though: https://www.magnetic-speedometer-repair.com
