An automobile instrument shop should be able to roll back and odometer if you bring them proof that it's not for fraudulent reasons. If you take both speedos to a shop and explain what you want done it is easily done. Since you have one that's done for, why don't you see if you can open it without damaging it further? You have it available for practice. If you can get it open you will find that turning the odometer back isn't difficult. If you can't get it open or don't want to here's a possible place to send it. Give them a call.

I don't think you can get enough heat on it to do any good before you'd damage the plastic or the innards of the speedo. Before cutting the bezel ring,try to carefully bend up the part crimped behind the face. If you work carefully you should be able to pry the folded over edge up enough to get the clamp ring off. At least I've been able to do that to two other gauges successfully. If you can slip it off you should be home free. Assuming you can, use a padded plier to fold the metal back down. Prying open and closing you want to just do a little at a time and make several passes around the perimeter just bending a little bit each time. If you do get it apart that way when crimping back down be careful to pressure only the bent up part, don't put too much pressure on the front side or you might crack the glass.
