Rewards of a Nervous Breakdown

One of the rewards of having a nervous breakdown (if you're a motorcycle) is that you get your wiring rejuvenated and sometimes, if you're lucky, a few extra goodies get thrown in. In the Balita's case, she got a new speedometer dial. The old one broke when its cable got stuck on the clamp of old support of the rectifier, which tugged the main pin loose and broke the mechanism. Emilio had another one on hand and stuck it in. It looks pretty sharp, although I can't say what year it's from. Maybe one of you clever people know and can comment at the bottom of the page.

The old clock at 30,000 km

The old clock at 42000km

Presto! Chango!

A new speedometer, marking only 13,591.8 km. 

Since it's not been to the vehicle inspection test yet, there's no problem. I'll just have to add 30,000 km to the maintenance schedule from now on. 


  1. Love this! John, I've just subscribed to follow your blog via email. How did you set that up on eblogger? Dana

  2. To tell you the truth, I have no clue! I dither about with the settings from time to time, and sometimes it works out :-)
