Need an analog speedo

I found a bike in the trash a couple weeks ago and decided to see what I could do with it without putting much cash into it. Its a Vista Pacer, I know its not a top of the line bike but its been fun working on it and its really coming to life. I couldn't find anything on the internet about the bike (5 speed double with Suntour GT rd and Spirt fd) but thats not important to me. I was looking for an old (new) analog speedo for it. Anyone know someplace I can find one? I've tried ebay and my LBS with no luck.

All I know about speedos is that some people should stay away from them.

I haven't seen an analog speedometer / tachometer set in 20 years.

Tires are 27X1 1/4. I remember seeing small ones in the 80's. I don't want something to big or to expensive. After all, I did find this bike in the trash and wanted to see how cheap I can bring it back to life. So far, $12 for two tubes.

I have an old analog odometer that I took off a bike I got back in October. Not sure how or even if it works, but if you want it $1.00 plus shipping and its yours.

Here's a Schwinn speedo at eBay:

And here's a nicer French-built Schwinn speedo:

The category 'Collectibles/Transportation/Bicycles' is full of them.

Thanks gang... USA, I kind of would like it to work, thanks anyway. I couldn't find them on the OCBC site, not sure where to look. The one made in france looks like the right one but no cable. I emailed the guy to see what its all about....
