    Hey, nice ride. I got myself a gps speedometer white face on eBay for just little over 50 bucks. Works great and even had an odometer and has a red backlight on it.
    Just me, myself, and I riding my V8 on the Rez.

    For cables I have liked the Venhill cables and kits.

    Real motorcycle sized cables in lined sleeves and an assortment of ends.

    Very nice. UK based, but are on ebay.

    You know...... I have been looking at sports watches like the fit bit thing. The ones for bicycling has MPH and distance traveled.

    So.....speedo on your wrist.

    But do they go up high enough in mph for you and your trike Rex ? If for the wrist they may have a speed limit they go to, and after that you are in the dark about your true speed.

    Great idea if they have a range that goes up to plus miles per hour.

    Wow!, that's what the trike feels like on some roads!

    Thanks for the venhill link. I will get some parts from them. My minimum cable length is 118"

    OK...here's the pics I promised. made the trailer hitch to fit the wheelie bar brackets, wiring the speedo was an exercise in perseverance, and the only problem with my trailer setup is I can't see the trailer in my mirrors unless I wiggle the handlebars!
