also if someone finds that speedo on ebay please send me the link cause I didn't find it there
The long stem that turns has a metal or graphite ring set into the top, This ring is magnetic.There is a sensor on the little circuit board and the spinning magnet must generate a voltage that by the magic of electronics gives a speed in proprtion to the spinning. Or I could be completely wrong!
Camera not good enough to take a clear picture.

I bought mine from Euro Parts
