If you don't want to spend a lot of money, put a Sigma bike computer on it. The biggest problem is measuring your front tire.

Don't pay the extra for the wireless version. I've heard they have had some EMI issues where the ignition system interferes with the Sigmas' signal.

Heck, just skip the speedo altogether. Just go slightly faster than everyone else is going and everything will be fine.

Honda speedometers from that year with the same front wheel size should fit.

I'd worry more about the valve train and tranny if I were you.
