Every manufacturer of aftermarket gauges has a speedo in every gauge line they sell. As noted, Summit, Jegs, etc, etc. There are conventional cable drive speedos, electronic speedos, and now GPS-based speedos that don't require any connection to the trans.

Now, if you are looking for a drop-in replacement for your factory gages, that's a different problem.

Seedometer= tells you how fast you are planting.
I just couldnt resist that...woohooo
On a serious note, most speedometers register 1 mile per 1000 revolutions of the input shaft(the thing the cable drives)
Some speedos only need 940 or 960, some are at 1040.
Might be something to check on when replacing your speedo.
