Chronometric Speedos
« on: February 19, 2018, 03:18:40 pm »
I am staying with a Spanish classic motorcycle enthusiast in the Canary Islands who is looking for someone to repair a couple of chronometric speedos. I did a search and noticed Ian Bartrums name, does he still repair these and are there any other suggestions? Thanks.

I've used Ian Bartram for many years, he's about 25 miles from me so easy to drop in, and he's good and trustworthy. His elderly father has been well-known in classic car and bike circles all his life so Ian was brought up with old clunkers.

Thanks for that, do you have a contact email or no.for Ian Bartram please Ray. I was shown a warehouse yesterday where many older bikes of various European names were stored generally in need of much restoration and amongst them was a rusty C11, unfortunately my photo was very unclear.

I'm amazed you can tell anything from that picture but I was concentrating on the engine and I guess the tank gives it away.

Ian Bartram Speedo's, Enfield, Mill Lane, Barnby, Nr Beccles, Suffolk NR34 7PZ    Tel. 01502 476612

He only does Chronometric instruments and old ammeters. He'll do a just a service, a cheap repair or a full refurb and has fixed a trip meter for me while I wait and drink his dad's tea.
