Yes Sir!! They all did. It was just for show. There was not any pickup on the front wheel to trigger them!!!
The AMA Rulebook said certain parts of the bike had to be 'stock appearing" Gauges being one of them.
Those speedo 's retailed for like 400 bucks back then. I sold mine back to the shop I was working in so they could use it on a warranty job. I put the broken speedo on my bike, and spent the cash on more parts I could use. If I crashed the bike, I would take out the broken speedo instead of a perfectly good speedo that was not even hooked up to work!!!
