60mm Speedometer? Yes I know..But I have to ask?

Looking for a 60mm speedometer genuine Smiths jobbie to match my NOS Tacho/drive unit that I have in a box.
I realise that they a touch on the rare side but just thought I would ask all the same

B50 came with 80mm speedo/tacho units. What model is this off and do you have a photo of the tacho unit showing the face? I used a 60mm speedo on my B50 years ago when I couldn't get the 80mm unit. Since replaced with genuine kpm unit.

I think for the most part the only OIF unit singles that used 80mm clocks were the BSA B25T & B50T models, most if not all SS models and all Triumph 250's came with the smaller instruments fitted.

The smaller 60mm speedo was fitted to the b25ss/t25ss as std. the b25t/t25t/b50ss/b50t all had the 80mm item with reversible trip fitted as std.
