I bought a 1985 ElectraGlide Classic last fyear from the original owner; it has always been garage kept and is in pristine condition. The only issue with this bike is it eats speedometer cables. I know the original owner replaced the speedo cable numerous (3+) times while he had it (He did not ride it much; I know of one 4 year stretch when it never left his garage) . I have had 2 speedo cables put on it in 18 months, and both of them have broken, the second one less than 3 miles after it was installed. I am not doing the work myself, I am paying the local shop to do it, and they have done excellent work with everything else, so I do not think it is (or at least not solely) mechanic error. This is my first Harley, and I would really like to have everything working correctly. Can anyone give me some ideas about how to resolve this?
