    I bought it from a guy in perth who bought the contents to a storage unit after the renter abandoned the unit by not paying the bills. Should take much to get going. New tires chain sprockets. Some panel work and paint etc. Ill get carbs rebuilt and vapour blast a lot of pieces. Scored it for $800 :)

    So Ive been slowly chasing up parts suppliers from sites my fellow members have suggested. One think I can find or I dont know if they are available are replica fairing kits / panels and if u can still order the original decals or source them aftermarket? My panels are pretty good and just need a good clean and repaint, some minor welding needed but I wound not mind knowing if aftermarket were available. if I cant source the decals I was going to make it into a lucky strike replica.

    Also does anyone know where i can source the original style mirrors?

    Hi guys did these come with a fairing panel that you could sway out with the pillion seat pad for a solo seat look?
