Send me a PM, or better, an email.

Beemerboff - I've seen those gauges from India, only they've been for the pre-1970 models.

skipn - nice looking bike! Must have been a very clean barn. Did the bike have a cover over it? Also, I think most of us paid too much for our first beemer - don't feel like the Lone Ranger!

Bill - yeah, know what you mean about unobtanium bezels. I think that's the only one available any more. I've been trying to figure out how to reproduce the rest of them.

another 75/7

I also have a 75/7 with about 23000 miles on it.On its first ride after winter storage this spring , the tach started chattering. It may be just the cable.
I have been unable to get either the tach or speedo cables off of the instrument. The brass threaded section that the cables screw onto just spins when I try to remove them.
any suggestions?
If I do get them off , what should I use to lube them and the inside of the tach?

Thanks
Peter

A long time ago we used powdered graphite in the cables, as you didnt want oil working its way up the cable and into the Smiths Chronometric, or whatever, instruments.

I would probably still work OK on the cables, but I have no idea either if the instruments need lubing or if they do, what to lube them with.

You can't lube the instruments through the input where the cable attaches. They have to be dismantled to get to the lubrication points.
