Bonniksen speedos have been difficult to find for a number of years. But if you are lucky enough to find one it has, until now, been virtually impossible to source the other items necessary to fit it to your vintage motorcycle or car. The Bonniksen Boy can now offer everything you need to to fit your speedo and make it read reliably and accurately - with those wonderful 'whirring hands' doing the job they were first designed to do way back in 1912.

Supplied with gearing to suit front or rear wheel drive, left or right side fitment.
