Replacement - Speedometer angle converter

Thanks to Dovie who posted this information on the Yahoo! Guzzi_Quota news group. In Dovie's own words:

Regarding the angle converter for the speedo...it can be had from Cosmopolitan Motors in Hatboro, PA or Domi Racer. When I bought my Quota the miter box or angle thing or whatever was trashed, but I had a spare in store as the Benelli 4 and 6 cylinder bikes used the very same part (Mine was the Sei 900) so try those 2 outlets for this part. I bet you it will be in stock and cheaper than Moto Guzzi.

Repair - Speedometer angle converter

Thanks to Erling Pedersen who posted this information on the Yahoo! Guzzi_Quota news group. In Erling's own words:

(Here is a) photo of a small and effective repair of the angular drive. It is one of those things that cracks when you forget to grease the drive and the cable, or when the cable is stressed. Or maybe it is just a bad design. I have repaired it on the Le Mans II some twenty years ago, (Did I say twenty years? It seems like yesterday.) The brass thing can be changed with a hose clamp, it works but does not look the same.
