Editors note: Speedometer is a rare Stewart Warner “Meteor”, and the Goodyear tag is actually a pre-WW2 accessory that was designed to hold 3 metal letters. Goodyear dealers had these, and could fit them with a childs initials. This unit was also standard equipment on some Goodyear branded bicycles in 1941, such as the Colson built Clipper.
