I need a set of mufflers for a /2 BMW.
And wouldnt mind a set of the carb intake tubes that dont have 1/2 the chrome flaking off (I already have a set like that)

Thanks, Doug

Depends on what brand. Parts for a lot of the British bikes are quite easy to come by, especially Nortons. I can have parts for my Norton on my doorstep quicker than most any current model.

BMW /5 and up are fairly plentiful, but not always cheap. It pays to shop around.

Its like any old vehicle. At first hard as nails, but then after you get your sources together fairly easy for most stuff new and used. Specialty suppliers, ebay, places like ADV, and you will even figure out local sources that sell stuff that will work on your bike like spark plugs/fuel filters, etc.

Thanks, Doug

Which /2 model are you looking for? The air intake tubes are different lengths for R50 and R60 and I think the R69 as well. Comes down to stroke IIRC.

found some parts that appear to be Honda CL, not sure which displacement or which year/s among a batch of XR stuff I bough
maybe someone here needs them
how does $50 plus shipping sound?

Hodaka Rolling Chassis

1972 Wombat 125 less engine. Frame, wheels, fenders, suspension in good shape, tank is fair with small dent. Engine sent to Hodaka Dave for rebuild, and I can't justify the cost, so bailing on the project. Would like to see it go to a good home. Let's talk. Located in eastern Iowa.
