I'm restoring an R2 for a client in Switzerland, and need an R2 speedometer in KPH.
Tried all the usual sources. Any one have one?

I recently sold a KPH speedometer of a Studebaker Silver Hawk to Australia. They are getting rare.

Nice to hear that Swiss people let the vehicles restore in the USA. I always enjoyed the easy-going way of US car guys helping in the restoration progress and also shipping vintage car parts to Switzerland.

As you are probably aware there are speedometer shops that can do the conversion from MPH to KPH. I have used North Hollywood Speedometer and Palo Alto Speedometer, both in California, and these two locations due superb work . They can make what ever face you want. They are not cheap though , but they will get it done.

If you have a good bezel I can do one. What speed range?

What ever the R2 had in KPH.....I don't know if they corresponded to the 160 MPH or not?

Took a clearer picture this afternoon. BTW, this one will be for sale this summer, but attached to the car!

Bizarre, you'd expect it to be marked every 10 kph.

It would be very tough to get 29 numbers on that small face.
