That is a '37 type speedo. All '36s only go to 100 and '38s all have trip meters. What does it say on the edge of the face? And is it a repro?

Just to expand on Robbie's response - technically that face is correct for a 37->40 bike. Robbie is correct in noting there is no 38->40 style face without a trip, however, the trip odometer remained an option and if a bike was ordered in the 38 to 40 timeframe without a trip odometer that was the face that was supplied (a trip odometer was included in most equipment groups so very few bikes left the factory without it, primarily those that did would have been Servi-Cars since none of their equipment groups included the trip odometer). Further, based on what I see in the Stewart Warner speedometer parts list, I believe some late 37s may have been delivered with the 38->40 style face (speedo 509-DG specifies the 37 style speedo can and the 38->40 style face (but I've never seen an original of this speedo)) ...
