We have stunning roads to ride but security does need to be something to consider. We are so used to the situation that we tuned into all the possible short falls.Thanks Dave, I will get it sorted
How is the riding in SA? I have been wanting to do a trip there and rent a bike but have read quite a bit of stuff on security concerns in general.
What are your thoughts?
That looks like a really good trip. But I would want my 800XC.
If you are starting from scratch, and are NOT doing a 100 point restoration, you can always use the replacement meters that look excellent & perform very well, at less than half the price of originals.Thanks Village
will tuck that info away and do you know if the sell without the an exchange "core"?
as mine are gone, I will now need to purchase a tach and speedo
I'm in the same boat with this guy Bob Carter. Found him on EBAY, talked to him on the phone about what I had and he said he could take care of my gauges for $312.00. They are off my 68 Bonneville, it's been 2 1/2 months since he got my gauges and money. He doesn't answer phone calls or emails and last I talked to him he had some BS story about how the tach I sent him was the wrong gear ratio for the bike and that's what was taking so long. Talked to him last Thursday, he said he'd call back that Friday or Saturday with a tracking number but of course that didn't happen, and I can't get a hold of him now, but he does have a tach and speedo up for bid on EBAY that's for my year bike! How convenient is that. Basically I doubt I'll get the gauges or money back. Big time scam and crook! I've been in contact with EBAY and PayPal and filed a claim with my credit card. May get my money back but I'm sure I'll be out the gauges which ticks me off big time! People beware of this crook, find a reputable restorer as he's not one!Glad that someone has had a positive experience but here is mine
Sent two original Smiths gauges and 212 $ to Bob Carter of Portland Oregon (firstname.lastname@example.org) over a year ago. My gauges are gone along with my cash. He claims they were restored/returned but refuses to provide proof of shipping. I estimate my total loss at over 700 dollars but more importantly, they were the originals off my Unclesâ€™ 1965 Bonneville.
