or if that is to hard for you, you could put a portable gps in, that will tell you your speed.

Good used speedometers come up on Ebay all the time. I've sld several....don't think I've ever gotten more than $10 for one. As far as I know you can just dropin a140 mph unit

Make sure to differentiate between cable drive and electronic drive when buying....the change was made around '82 or so

Cheers
