Where do you buy parts?
If you're going to restore one of these vintage Honda motorcycles it is inevitable that you're going to need to buy some parts. Lots of parts. Luckily, most parts for these old bikes are still widely available. You may need to be patient sometimes but if you stick to it, you'll find what you need.
Here are some of the places I get my parts.
If you're bike is missing a side cover, a fender, a gas tank, emblems, or pretty much anything cosmetic, eBay is the place to go.
