How weird is this?

I'm not a great believer in karma but when you buy an unrestored unmolested 1966 Westy from the States and you start work on the speedo electrics, glance up and see this

it makes you wonder what is going on,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

I thought the bus was lowish miles even though it was rusty underneath so I reckon it has done 101966 miles exactly!

Hmmm, I would have assumed you had already seen that during your comprehensive pre- purchase inspection. Hope you had a good summer!

No - never looked at the speedo Dan! Just the rusty bits and the good interior. Still summer here! Will be at Busfest.
