Seasons greetings all. 

My speedo works fine but I have a problem with the rim that goes round the circumference of the face of the dial. This is the rim that holds the glass in place and is a press fit to the body of the instrument.

Well, on my bike it has been bashed and dented in a few places and for aesthetic reasons I would like to have it replaced so it looks nice again. 

Does anyone have any tips on how to replace this rim, or do you know who I might get in touch with to get this done ?

Thanks all.

If you search back on this forum, something I usually fail at, I'm sure that Italian Motor had his veglia clocks refurbed. I'm sure if Brian sees this he will wave his magic wand and find it for you

Thanks Guys,

I like the look of this guy. Some really good before and after photos. Also, with the added bonus that he is just round the corner from me in South London !

You can peel the bezel from the clock body with a thin flat piece of metal, curved the radius of the housing. That will let you elevate dents. It's made of aluminium so with little effort shouldn't be hard to remove and banged back to shape. If you pry it evenly, it will snap back for assembly.
Use aluminum primer before the top coat.
That said, if it's not too rough, you can refurbish it with filler and filing, as it sits without taking it apart.

I used the afforementioned Speedy cables to refurb the clocks on my V7Sport. They did a great job but, don't be in a hurry.

Dan, that's an interesting idea - but I don't think I have the skills needed to make it look like I want it to. I would spend about 3 days getting very cross with it and then still have to pay someone else to sort my mess out.

Getting upset shouldn't be part of the fix
Peace
